GUEST,Jack-o Folklore: Rude Rhymes & Bawdy Songs. (36) RE: Folklore: Rude Rhymes & Bawdy Songs. 01 Jul 10

Does anyone know - when the following bawdy ballads were first recorded and are they in copyright?   1st one is Thrashing Machine which I cannot find any early versions before 1970.

Rosie, Rosie me girlfriend
She lets me touch her little twot
I don't know if she likes it or not ----- (and so on)

the other is

I went out to an orgy
At Billy Miller's ranch ----- (and so on)

the last one

Bluey shot down from the scrub, running for his life
Seems they caught old Dusty, screwing Bluey's wife
We were siting drinking at the pub that day
When Dusty had a bang bang bang, with Bluey's wife called May

any help would be appreciated.
