Thread Name: Lyr Req: Dogger Bank / Grimsby Fisherman
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Dogger Bank' - help w. some words
A Yorkshire apple, no less, as I mentioned in the earlier discussion linked to by Joe (see above). The uncredited text from "Songs of England", posted above and in the earlier thread, is from the traditional singer Sam Larner of Norfolk. The other thread also has a text of Grimsby Fisherman from Patrick O'Shaughnessy's Yellowbelly Ballads, part 1, 1975, "remembered from print" (so shorter than the broadside) c. 1904.
