While following a train of thought from Sally Gardens I came across the words for J McG in the DT and this line struck me as just wrong:
"Up to (Glaster) diamonds, red pity on your mind"
surely up to the Gloucester Diamond as mentioned in The Spanish Lady
and "Red Biddy", the MD 20/20 or Bucky of its day. I did a quick Google to see exactly what Red Biddy was and found this
Ban the Demon Drink
from hansard of 1937 which I found quite interesting.
I don't know if a thread like this is the way to set the lyrics right but it seemed the obvious thing to do.

I have posted the information you gave us to the thread called DT Attribution & Minor Corrections PermaThread. That thread is how we pass information to Susan Friedman, who uses it to updates her master copy of the Digital Tradition Database. Her master copy is not what you see, however. Mudcat's copy of the DT is only updated once every 5 years or so.
