G. H. Macdermott and Arthur Lloyd's 'I'll Strike You With A Feather' or 'I'll Stab You With A Rose'
Above - G. H. Macdermott and Arthur Lloyd's 'I'll
Strike You With A Feather' or 'I'll Stab You With A Rose' - Kindly sent
in by Colin McIntre who says:- 'Hildebrand Montrose was the title given
to the American publication of I'll Strike You with a Feather (White,
Smith & Co.: Boston). You can find the US version at the Library
of Congress (www.loc.gov/item/ihas.100007370).
The words and music are identical to the UK version. So Christopher
Pulling is correct, both Lloyd and Macdermott would have sung this song.
