Jim Dixon Lyr Add: Take Her Out of Pity/Old Maid's Song (41) Origin: OLD MAID'S SONG (Peggy Seeger) 07 Mar 20


THE OLD MAID'S SONG, as sung by Peggy Seeger, and posted by Joe Offer above, can be found in Lonesome Tunes: Folk Songs from the Kentucky Mountains collected and edited by Loraine Wyman (New York: H. W. Gray Co., 1916). The words match so closely, I don't think it's worthwhile to post another copy. But it has the notation: "Pulaski County, Kentucky" and it contains a musical arrangement for piano, which may be of interest to someone more musically literate than I am.
