NOTES [59 words]: Hubbard-BalladsAndSongsFromUtah's two texts both have three verses, only one of which they have in common. I don't know if they constitute a single song, and I don't know if it can properly be separated from other songs, e.g., of the "Rye Whiskey" type. In the absence of anything better, I file the piece separately, but don't take that as guaranteed. - RBW
