banjocircus Origins: The Barber Song (from Harlow) (1) Origins: The Barber Song (from Harlow) 10 May 11

The Barber Song (first verse below) is listed in Harlow's Chanteying Aboard American Ships. The source is listed as the Vineyard Gazette with no additional information (year, attribution, etc). Can anybody provide more information?




There was a young barber who lived in the city
He was a melodious sweet-scented cuss
His hair it was curly his heels double jointed
He never was known for to kick up a fuss
