Thread Name: Lyr Req: Titanic (old Irish version)
Subject: RE: Need Titanic Lyrics: Old/Irish version
Nathan D. Rose doesn't make it easy to navigate through his site. I found the lyrics with Google, but the page that has the lyrics doesn't provide any links to the pages that explain where the lyrics came from. And his home page doesn't provide any clue that the lyrics exist.

I've reconstructed the pathway from his home to the lyrics:

At his home page, click "ballad links."

On the "ballads" page, click "my own field work."

This brings up a page called "Watson Fellowship," which contains the request "You may download files..." that GUEST quoted above. On that page, click "Ireland" under the heading "Skip the map...."

That brings up a list of singers. Click "Micho Russell, 1988."

On the page about Micho Russell, click "The Titanic."

The trouble is, if you arrive at "The Titanic" from Google or from a link outside the site, you have no way to navigate backwards through the above path.

I would have been happy to comply with Mr. Rose's request if only I had seen it.

I plan to e-mail him with some suggestions.
