GUEST,Richie Origins: How many versions of Geordie (53* d) RE: How many versions of Geordie 23 Feb 13


Thanks Mick, Perhaps you or someone else can verify teh date and source of this version also in the DT:

GEORGEY- Contentment, or, The compleat Nutmeg-State songster - Page 93
Jim Douglas - 1987

As I walk'd over London Bridge;
'Twas in the morning early
'Twas there I met with this Good Lady
Pleading for the Life of Georgey.

Come saddle to me your milk white steed,
And bridle him so neatly,
That I may away to my Good Lord Judge,
And Plead for the life of Georgey.

From Thomas Fanning's "Notebook, 1779-1780. Thomas Fanning served in Samuel Blachley Webb's Connecticut Regiment until 1780.

Is this version from c. 1779? Connecticut?
