Thread Name: DT Correction: The King of Ballyhooley
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The King of Ballyhooley
I added Cleod's additonal line to Wolfgang's post, but the song made it into the Digital Tradition without the missing line. Are there any other corrections to be made to the lyrics before I submit a correction? In another thread, Malcolm said the tune used for The King of Ballyhooley is essentially the same as Lurgan Town in the DT.

Is the songwriter known, or is this traditional, or what? I couldn't find it listed in the usual songbook indexes.
