Thread Name: Who was Paddy Doyle?
Subject: RE: Who was Paddy Doyle?
Damn! My great post just went off to limbo...
At first I assumed you were misquoting Joanna Colcord about confusing "Paddy West" with "Paddy Doyle" but then I check page 42 of Songs of American Sailormen and, indeed, it was she who was confused.
I think you are definitely on to something with your literary reference to Paddy Doyle.
