Lyrics are in the DT. I'm sure someone here will be glad to make you a blue clickie thing.

I would ask a question by the way. I have this song recorded by Dave Van Ronk (on the album «Live at Sir Williams University», in Montreal). The first and second verses of the Dt are sung third and forth in Van Ronk's version. I find it make more sense like this. The song began « It was down in old Joe's barroom» and you understand that it's Joe Mckenny's wife that died. Is there a mistake in the DT or is there a original version that goes as it's in the DT?
