Subject: RE: My Johnny was a Shoemaker - origins?
Can anything be inferred by the style/mode of the tune? Maybe Mr Florence was a master of the genre, or maybe he just claimed authorship - this is what I wanted to establish. If we can't find a prior example, then he may well be the author. What about the other songs?
