In another thread Martin Ryan posted...

Theres a fine comic murder song called "The Ballad of Joe Frawley" in which the murder weapon is "a Black Diamond banjo wire" - after which the body is slung in a lake. The policeman's initial assessment goes:

"We have reasonable suspicion foul play is involved here
For we found his body floating at the bottom of the lake
And those marks around his windpipe - a blunt instument did make"!

of which I would like more, including tune and chords, if possible...
