Subject: RE: Origin: Ballad of Seth Davy / Whiskey on a Sunday
I learn these words over on the "posh." side. i.e. The one eyed city!!
His tired old hands drummed wooden beams
And the puppet Dolls they danced the gear
A better show ever, that you would see
At the Tivvie (Tivoli) or New Brighton Pier
An on some stormy night down "Scotty." road way
When the wind's blows up from the sea
You can still hear the sound of old Seth Davy
As he croons to his dancing dolls three.
