Subject: RE: Oyster Girl lyrics sought
Regarding "Twas the fifteenth of December, so well I do remember", I don't know the words nor have Hugill's Bosun's Locker, but does the tune 'Annie of the Vale' fit the words? This will fit the first line and bears some resemblance to the broadside 'The Reason Why' and Pardon's 'One Cold Morning in December' (see Belshazzar's Feast and Paul Sartin).
