The Victorians didn't cover table/piano kegs etc for modesty. That's a myth. However the content of many folksongs would have been illegal to publish at the time because of their perceived obscenity. If published in their entirety they would have had to buried in academic obscurity. Just as any racist folksong would be now. Different times, different sensitivities.
