Thread Name: Origin: Tell Old Bill
Subject: Tell Old Bill
I'm seeking background (time period, location, evolution, etc.) on Tell Old Bill from American Songbag, Sandburg. The lyrics are in the DT DB. I have seen this song in other books done in the Queen's English, but "I lub de 'rigno' dilect dey got in de DT vershun". Thanks in advance for your help.
