Floating Verses
« on: May 30, 2020, 05:28:02 PM »
Many articles, books, posts, etc characterize verses as "floating" or "stock" verses.

But is there any good repository of floating verses?

Many of them are obvious to even a casual listener, but has anyone compiled a good database of floating/stock verses?

Thanks!

Not that I know of, but Michael Taft's concordance might yield some leads if you know what you're after:

Hi Brennan,
It isn't exactly what you described but you might find the following thread on "The Earliest Appearance of Archetypal Blues Lyrics" interesting:  https://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=6031.msg48202#msg48202

All best,
Johnm

Thanks!  I have seen the Taft concordance (definitely a good source) but missed the "The Earliest Appearances of Archetypal Lyric Phrases" thread.
