Just out of curiosity, why does "Oh, my rolling river" appear in the list of DigiTrad song links at the top of this thread? I can't see how you could sing it to this tune, nor does the text seem related to either John Brown's Body or Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory...

I tried to post this to the thread itself, but it didn't "take"...

It is probably an indication that Joe Offer dyslexed when he typed in the song number. I could think of passing the blame on to Jim Dixon, who gave me the numbers I used for dozens of the thread groups. Maybe I could pass it on to Q or Jeri, who also helped. But hey, that wouldn't be fair - I'll take the blame.

But now the question is, how to out-think my dyslexia - what dyslexic scrambling of the number 4367 does tie to the Battle Hymn of the Republic?

And now I'm wondering about "O My Rolling River" - do we know anything about this song?

Try 4257, and Shenandoah, which is where this one should be. Looks like somebody's left hand was typing one number farther right than desired.

Which is weird, but has nothing to do with why the song got added to the wrong group.

I had a dyslexic coworker, and it drove me crazy when he took phone messages for me and wrote down phone numbers. I usually found that his transposition was in the middle of the final, four-digit group. If he took down 634-4367 as the number and it didn't work, I often found that 634-4637 would be the correct number. But I tried 4637 and a number of other permutations here, and nothing tied to the "Battle Hymn of the Republic."
'Tis a puzzlement.

Thanks, guys and gals. It's clear to me now, even if you aren't sure what happened.
