Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Maggie May (from A. L. Lloyd)
I just listened on Spotify to a recording of A. L. Lloyd singing MAGGIE MAY, and I hear it exactly as stormalong transcribed it above except that in verse 3 line 4, I hear "ranting sailor" rather than "rampant sailor."
And in the last verse, although "poxed" makes sense, it really sounds more like "boxed."
