GUEST,Redhorse at work It's 1804, What Are We Singing? (32) RE: It's 1804, What Are We Singing? 31 May 04


Sorry, "Peg and Awl" doesn't qualify. Although the lyic refers to "days of eighteen and one" etc, the shoe-stitching machine referred to (whose name escapes me, but I'm sure someone can remind me) wasn't actually invented till the 1850's. Just because the song's old doesn't mean it's not anachronistic!!
