Does anyone know the song "Dinah and Villikins" 1st verse as follows:
There was a rich merchant in London did dwell
He had but one daughter an uncommon young Girl
Her name it was Dinnah just 16 years old
and she had a large fortune in silver and gold
She rejects suitor for young Villikens Who finds her dead in the garden with a cup of cold poison by her side Moral: "'tis better to die and grow cold than to marry a suitor for silver and gold" It sounds as tho it could have written by John J. Niles or Richard Dying Bennet who "found it in the southern Mts. Who wrote it??? Is it traditional or what???
