I double-checked the lyrics in the Digital Tradition. There's a scanning error - the word "I'd" that came out "l'd" - but the lyrics otherwise match the sheet music (but there is also a mistake in the spelling of the title). Corrections have been noted by Jim Dixon in the "DT Attributions/Corrections" thread. I converted John's MIDIText to a MIDI and inserted a link to his Barry Taylor MIDI in his post. I didn't find Barry's ornamentation in the sheet music, so I did my own transcription from the 1913 sheet music.
