Thread Name: Lyr Req: Two Sisters Nonsense version
Subject: Lyr Req: Two Sisters Nonsense version
Here's a request for someone like Jon Lighter or Mick Pearce.
In Cazden's Catskills book they mention a nonsense version of Child 10 The Two Sisters, with title The Three Sisters. I've found 3 or 4 versions with this title but not what I would call obviously nonsense.
Probably an American piece and possibly a minstrel adaptation.
Any light from Lighter would be welcome.
