Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 6
Thanks Mick and Lighter,

Coffin also says the "George Aloe" is very rare in North America- yet I don't know of any versions- as far as I know they are all "Coast of Barbary/High Barbaree."

Anyone know of a "George Aloe" US version?

I'm also wondering that since their are US broadside versions of "Coast of Barbary/High Barbaree" dating back to the 1700s, why aren't there corresponding broadside versions with similar text in Britain?
