Thread Name: Origins: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Subject: RE: Baltimore Fire..a 'new' old verse....
Typo alert: although the NLCR song book (now titled Old-time String Band Songbook (Oak, 1976)) shows the "faded" in the last line of the first verse in the text at the bottom of the page, the word is "fated" in the musical transcription above it. "Faded" is used in the DT, but it looks like "fated" is correct (although "faded" is charming); I've seen "fated" in other transcriptions.
The additional verse at the top of this thread is included in the DT version, without any additional attribution noted.
