GUEST,Steve Gardham Looking for 'Dark Girl Dressed In Blue' (38) RE: Looking for 'Dark Girl Dressed In Blue' 17 Mar 08

Possibly not the same song, Norman, but prolific folk-song writer Harry Clifton who died in 1872 wrote a song of this title in 1862. I say folk-song writer because of all the music hall lyricists his songs more than anyone else's of the early music hall are still sung today as folk songs. Both Vance and Leybourne wrote spin-off songs to this one so it must have been very popular in its day. The Levy collection has a copy online. It must have entered oral tradition very quickly as different versions exist on broadsides.
