Thread Name: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 5
Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 5

I've moved on to 275 Get Up and Bar the Door. Seems like many of the collected US versions are questionable. Cox, Combs, Gainer, Brown A and B, plus Niles are all questionable- I've pointed this out even tho I hate doing it. Should I?

Here's a link to one:

Coffin lists the version in Davidson's Universal Melodist- how can that be a US version?

Also I can find the version in Delehanty & Hengler's Song and Dance Book- 1874. Is it on-line? Are there other versions in US songsters?

Any other US versions? I have Davis, Barry, Creighton and Flanders to put on yet.
