Boy Scouts and The Tattooed Lady

While proofing the audiobook version of my short story collection, one of the stories "The Candy Bar Game" the setting and background is roughly drawn from my experience as a Boy Scout.

Our scout master, Mr. Smyth, was an interesting guy with a wry sense of humor, and I was thinking about him. I recalled being roughly a First Class scout, and hearing Mr. Smyth sing The Tattooed Lady. For some reason that song/memory stuck with me.

I decided to look it up, because you can find anything on the internet. I only recalled bits and pieces of the song. So, here it is, although Mr. Smyth didn't sing it with a British accent.
