GUEST,banjoman Lyr Req: Eskimo Nell (51* d) RE: Lyr Req: Eskimo Nell 29 Jan 04

Many many years ago at a club in Liverpool hosted by the Original Old Rope band (the name was pinchedfrom them) I met a guy who produced a computer print out of Eskimo Nell.
We then spent a whole evening reading/singing it and counted 400 -Yes 400- verses. I don't know what happened to it and I suspect that lots of the verses were add ons to the original.

The song also included a few verses about another "Lady" called Sarah Cox :
This is the tale of Mary Cox
Who gave a thousand men the p**x
Now she's dead she's not forgotten
They just dig her up & Stuff her rotten.

Tho' she's known as Mary Tucker by the ones who used to f*** her
Her real name is Tulula Johnson Black
She's handled many a tool since the day she finished school
And made a darn fine living on her back

Thats all for now folks
