Subject: Threescore and ten
Threescore and ten - a song about a severe storm on the east coast of England which wrecked a large number of inshore fishing boats. I have the lyrics and music - in fact I perform the song with almost tedious regularity - but, sinner that I am, I don't know who wrote it. It may just be "traditional", but as the event was in the early part of this century, I expect an author lurks out there somewhere. Any ideas?
