Thread Name: Lyr Add: Felton Lonnin' / Lonnen / Lonning
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Felton Lonnin
This sort of thing always happens when a visitor revives a long-forgotten thread in order to post information that can already be found in every other discussion here on the subject.
People immediately start posting to it again, without noticing the date; and frequently without looking at other discussions.
'Guest Julia' is of course wrong. Though Johnny Handle did write another couple of verses for the song, they are not to be seen in this old thread; nor (thank goodness) are the further verses, added by somebody else, which transform the whole thing into a thoroughly sickly exercise in maudlin sentiment.
See thread Lyr Add: Felton Lonnen for pretty much everything you need to know; even who to blame for the ghastly final verses.
