What would be really interesting to me would be a song chain showing variants of
existing folk songs and their metamorphoses through the ages.

Example: The Ballad of Robert Kidd (Pirate)
Sam Hall.
What Wondrous Love is This (shape note hymn)

The stanzaic forms are similar indicating influences that changed the variants.

Variations for example of the Binorie Ballad, The Twa Sisters, The Wind and the Rain, etc.

Or The Three Ravens, Billy MacGee Macgaw, and possibly the melodic content for Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya'.

Every folk song in tradition has an antecedent either in music or in story content.

Well, well... much to my surprise, this one's not in the DT already:

Oh there come a young man to my Daddy's door
My Daddy's door
My Daddy's door
There come a young man to my Daddy's door
Come seekin' me to woo

Chorus (between each verse):
And ah but he was a bonny young man
A brisk young man and a braw young man
Ah but he was a bonny young man
Come seekin' me to woo

I took him in, into the bring (kitchen)
I gave him bread & ale to drink
But ne'er a broon eye would he blink
Until his wain was foo

There lay a broon dog before the door
Before the door, before the door
There lay a broon dog before the door
And there he tripped & fell

Then out come the old man & high(sp?) did he shout
And out come the old wife and Lord, did she lout (sp?)
And all 12 neighbours gathered about
And there he lay, it's true

Then out come I with a sneer & a smile
And I said "Young man, you have us beguiled
You came here to woo, now you're all defiled
And we'll ha' no more o' you!"


Heard some people sing this at a local festival in the Detroit area when I was a teenager and fell in love with it; afraid I don't know anything else about it really, except they introduced it as a song about the "utter humiliation" of a young man who was apparently more interested in the food than the girl he was supposedly "wooing"...

Rushes = Moses

Moses Ri-Toora-Li-ay


Traditional



The policeman walked out, oh so proud on his beat
When a vision came to him of stars on his sleeve
"Promotion," he whispered "I'll try for today
So come with me Moses Ri-toora-li-ay"

"Come tell me your name" says the limb of the law
To the little fat man selling wares on the straw
"What's that sir? Me name sir? Why, 'tis there on display
And it's Moses Ri-toora-li-loora-li-ay"

The trial it came on and it lasted a week
One judge said German another said Greek
"Prove you're Irish" said the policeman "and beyond it say nay"
And we'll sit on it Moses Ri-toora-li-ay"

The prisoner stepped up there as stiff as a crutch
"Are you Irish or English or German or Dutch?"
"I'm a Jew sir, I'm a Jew sir, that came over to stay
And my name it is Moses Ri-toora-li-ay"

"We're two of a kind" said the judge to the Jew
You're a cousin of Briscoe and I am one too
This numbskull has blundered and for it will pay"
"Wisha, that's right" says Moses Ri-toora-li-ay

There's a garbage collector who works down our street
Who once was a policeman, the pride of his beat
And he moans all the night and he groans all the day
Singing "Moses Ri-toora-li-loora-li-ay"
