Thread Name: George Collins - what's it all about?
Subject: RE: George Collins - what's it all about?
There are 3 versions of George Collins in the DT, Child #85, all under the title GEorge Collins. This one posted is the most complete version, but it probably lost some verses thru the years. The other 2 versions in the DT have lost the prediction part and just have women mourning his death. He must have been popular and had several girlfriends at a time. It is unusual that the name does not change (since I don't have the right volume of Child here, I can't verify that all are named George Collins, but I think so).
Such a Pleasant anonymous guest we have here, don't we.
