Thread Name: Lyr Add: Old Aunt Jemima & Aunt Jemima's Plaster
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Old Aunt Jemima
AUNT JEMIMA'S PLASTER appears, with musical notation for four voices, and without attribution, in Franklin Square Song Collection, Volume 8, by John Piersol McCaskey (New York: Harper & Brothers, 1892), page 124.
The lyrics mostly agree with those posted by Joe Offer from the Cansler recording, except for the last 4 lines of the last verse:
And if you wish to live in peace,
Avoiding all disaster,
Take my advice and try the strength
Of Aunt Jemima's plaster.
