Subject: RE: Origins: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
I have just been thru every recording I could find or Facebook and elsewhere, and although that 3 verse was obviously 'known' in various forms long ago, I can find no example of anyone actually singing it.
It is clear the Charlie Poole kind of set it in stone for most everyone.
   I have heard Becky Kimmons do it, though she she puts the verses in a different order than I do.
   Like the 3rd verse to "Amelia Earhart", it has been dropped from most recordings.

   Maybe I need to post ME to YouTube. ;)
