Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Admiral Benbow lyrics
There are two examples there of the "Virginia" song. See my earlier link to the Armstrong of Liverpool edition, and another, which I didn't spot first time round:
On admiral Bembo's death in the West-Indies Printed between 1790 and 1840 by J. Jennings, No. 13, Water-lane, Fleet- street, London (better of two copies).
