Thread Name: Lyr Req: Maggie May (from A. L. Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A. L. Lloyd's Maggie May
I don't think that George Ridley (writer of 'Blaydon Races', 'Cushie Butterfield' et al) had anything at all to do with 'Keep Yor Feet Still', or that there's any reason to doubt that Joe Wilson wrote it. He published the song in his Tyneside songs, ballads and drolleries. Part 2: 'Teun - Nelly Grey'.
