It may well be that many of the missing attributions have been added to the new version of the DT, which we have not yet seen; and I have been adding missing attributions to the "Missing Tunes" thread, too; however, it may well be useful to have a list in one place; not to nag, I hope, but to provide a helpful resource. Here are a few more; I think they're all accurate. Some have been mentioned quite regularly over several years.

FAIR ELIZA Robert Burns, 1792.
href=file:///@displaysong.cfm?SongID=5244&Title=SEVEN%20DAFFODILS>SEVEN DAFFODILS, of which it is a mis-spelled duplicate. Written by Lee Hayes and Fran Moseley in the early 1960s. In copyright.

"Wae's me for Prince Charlie" is in Hogg's Jacobite Relics, II, #99, 1821. In the notes he notes that it was said to be by Willam Glen. Hogg gives the tune, and in the notes mentions that it is "The Gypsie Laddie". Hogg has a further (last) verse to the song as follows.

But now the bird saw some redcoats,
And he shook his wings wi' anger:
"O this is no land for me,
"I'll tarry here nae laner."
A while he hover'd on the wing,
Ere he departed fairly:
But weel I mind the fareweel strain;
'Twas "Wae's me for Prince Charlie!"

Well, yes; I know that. Many of those problems seem to be the result of people copy-and-pasting accent marks instead of using the correct html codes; there isn't much point in complaining later on when they stop working, which is pretty well guaranteed to happen. Fortunately, Gaelic uses fewer diacriticals than the majority of European languages. Proper attributions are, I think, more important, though I certainly share your concern for accuracy. In the past, it does seem that the DT has placed more weight on quantity than quality; maybe this thread will help to redress the balance.

Joe - If you read the thread on Strange Fruit, there is no way you can find the DT attribution plausible - Billie Holiday and others who were there all say that Lewis Allen wrote 'Strange Fruit' that is the only correct attribution, and why are you the sole arbiter here?
    Dick Greenhaus, editor of the Digital Tradition, is the sole arbiter of DT content. I only reported my opinion. BMI attributes the song to Lewis Allan. Greenhaus reported that he had seen the song attributed to Holiday, and to Allan. Greenhaus did not attempt to make a determination about the credibility of either attribution - he merely reported what he saw. See DTStudy: Strange Fruit, and post any further discussion there.
    I think that Allan/Meeropol would have reason for complaint if his name were not mentioned at all - but it was.
    Please note that this "attributions" thread was started after the 2002 edition of the database was completed. Nothing that has been posted here will appear in the 2002 database, unless Dick Greenhaus had already received corrected information from other sources.

"It's a long way to Tipperary" was written by JACK JUDGE.

Bill Caddick even wrote a song about it for his show "Sunny Memories".

Harry Williams is often included in the credits, but that was only because he'd been a good friend of Jack's who'd often lent him money when trade was poor, and Jack promised in return that is he ever wrote a best-selling song, he would put Harry's name on it.

Dean Cadalan Samhach was written by John MacRae, the Kintail Bard. He had emigrated to North Carolina in 1774, where the song was written a few years later. Some contend that due to the subject matter it was actually written by his wife. Except for the speculation about his wife, the information was found in the Emigrant Experience by Sister Margaret MacDonnell of St. FX University.

Additional (and conflicting) info on 'Michael Blann's Drinking Song' above:

[1976:] Michael Blann was a shepherd, singer and whistle player who lived near Shoreham in Sussex, until about 1930. He wrote out a book of his songs in the 1880s and the book, including this song, is preserved in Worthing Museum. But Blann did not write the song, and its history is more complex still. It was written by John Hollamby, a grinder at Hailsham windmill, who in 1827 published the words in an anthology called 'The Unlettered Muse'. There it was called Gooch's Strong Beer. Blann, I think, adapted these words and added the chorus. The tune is, of course, Yankee Doodle. (Vic Gammon, notes 'The Tale of Ale')
^^
Could this mean it wasn't Blann, but his sister who adapted the words from John Hollamby's song?

The Jeelie Piece Song is attributed to Adam MacNaughton in the DT. This should be MacNaughtan.
^^
And in Bells of Rhymney, the town of Neathe should be spelled Neath.

It was probably Michael Blann's sister Harriet who re-wrote the song. She called it Blann's Beer; it was never called Michael Blann's Drinking Song until recorded by Revival performers.

ISLE OF INNISFREE not attributed in the DT was written by Richard Farrelly. Richard's son Gerard gives correction of the lyrics and history in this thread:
^^ http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=4131

The error of confusing the song "Isle of Innisfree" with the melody of the Dream of Alwyn is explained by Barry Taylor (also in thread link above).

The association of Alwyn with this song is a common phenomenon on the web... the evolution of threaded discussion into substantiated fact. We witnessed the same thing happen to another popular song... Pete St. John's Fields of Athenry, whose lyrics for a time were erroneously tagged to a non-existent traditional tune.

By having sequenced a midi of The Isle of Innisfree I am embarrassed to have been partly responsible for this musical fiction, as my midi spread across the web as some kind of authenticated proof of the traditional tune."

As Time Goes By, words and music by Herman Hupfield, 1931 (see thread). As the thread explains, people often think this song was written by Hoagy Carmichael.

Bread and Roses - DT correctly shows that lyrics were written by James Oppenheim (in 1914). the tune that's in the DT is variously attributed
to Martha Coleman or Caroline Kohlsaat (Edith Fowke & Joe Glazer & Sandy Paton say it's by Kohlsaat (click for discussion)).
The more recent tune by Mimi Farina is in Mudcat MIDIs.

I'll Fly Away - Albert E. Brumley, 1932.
^^
The tune doesn't sound right to me, either. I think what we have is the harmony line. Can anybody submit a MIDI with the melody?

Noticed these in recent threads:

Fanny Power -- should be Song of the Ghost, NOT by Yeats and Carolan, but by Alfred Percival Graves and trad.. Correct lyrics are there, too. (Info from Malcolm Douglas.)
^^
"Touch of the Master's Hand - mentioned above and in the database with no attribution - is a poem written by Myra Brook Welch ca 1927,
^^
It was published in "The Messenger" and reprinted in "Good Old Days". Sally Rogers saw it, liked it, and set it to music. (This is from an old Prairie Home Companion tape featuring Sally Rogers.)" -- Contributed by an anon. Guest here.
Whoops, that "anon. Guest" who posted about "Touch of the Master's Hand" named himself in the next post in that thread: it's Walter Corey.
