Thread Name: Origins: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Subject: RE: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Speaking of this song ... In my long ago days as a graduate student, participating in events of the Cornell Folk Song Club, I got the distinct impression into my head that this song was called "The Great Baltimore Treasury Fire". I don't see any mention of "treasury" in the lyrics, and I don't even know if there is/was a treasury of some type in Baltimore. Did I just mishear someone and run with the misinformation? Or has anyone else ever heard this "Treasury" title?
