Hi, Bill -
I'm still looking for Norm Cohen's two sources. Note that the estimable Kinney Rorrer agrees that the Poole song was derived from Joe Gulick's 1873 "Boston Fire." Norm Cohen's transcription of the 1873 Boston song includes the verse you furnished in your first post.
Now, can we find Gulick's Boston song, so we know if Norm Cohen gave us the complete lyrics?
