Subject: RE: Origin: Saint James Infirmary Blues
So much food for thought. Thanks. Do you have a link for Wayfaring Stranger?
Have you heard this:
Does the tune ring any bells? Fascinating stuff isn't it?
Lloyd uses a tune from a publication by Joyce.
I hope at least one of these links works.
Joyce got it from the papers of a man called Forde. So it's in the pdf on the Forde collection, page 249, entry no 442.
Hope you enjoy looking at it!
