Thread Name: Lyr Add: Take Her Out of Pity/Old Maid's Song
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Take Her Out of Pity
Like Meg, I learned this song as being sung in the first person: "Come a landsman, a tendsman, a tinker or a tailor, Fiddler or a dancer, a plowboy, a sailor, Gentleman, a poor man, A fool or a witty, Don't you let me die an old maid, But take me out of pity." Now where did I learn this? And the chorus ended on the 5th, which to me was so unusual. Sheila
