Blackcat2 Help: Usher's Well: What is a 'winding sheet' (29) RE: Help: Usher's Well: What is a 'winding sheet' 07 Feb 00

Greetings all

The winding sheet also appears in some versions of "William Bloat" and as for "Fiddler's Green" - the version I learned was "Dress me up in me oilskins and jumpers, no more on the docks I'll be seen - implying (to me at least) that the fellow was asking to be clothed in his work gear so he'd be ready for "work" in the other realm (Fiddler's Green being the "Heaven" of sailors).
