Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Old Brown's Daughter (from Peter Bellamy)
A little more context: G.W. Hunt (ca. 1839-1904) predates Johnny Burke by a good bit. The Levy has another of his songs, "It's Funny When You Feel That Way", dated 1856; I think A.P. Carter "refashioned" this song for one of his own. The music hall comedian Arthur Lloyd sang a slew of Hunt's songs, mostly written in the 1860's and 70's; you can find a list of them, with sheet music for some, at www.arthurlloyd.co.uk. Among those listed is "Old Brown's Daughter", with the notation "[ca. 1878]".
