NOTES [72 words]: The current description is all of the BrownSchinhanV fragment. There are a number of songs with the verse "I went to see my (Susie), she met me at the door, Said I needn't to come any more..."; I suspect this is related to one of them. But I don't know which; the lyric floats into, among other things, "The Keys of Canterbury," "Goodbye, Susan Jane," "Sally Anne," and "I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago (Bragging Song)." - RBW
