Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Froggy Went A-Courtin'
A very interesting article, "The History of "The Frog's Courtship: A Study of Canadian Variants," from the Canadian Journal of Traditional Music," 1990, is on line at: Frog's Courtship
It also surveys the melody and lyrics of the song (inc. sheet music) from "The Frog came to the Myl Dur", "Kitty Alone," etc. and the other antecedents to Canadian versions.
