Meaning of the term "bald-headed woman"[edit]

I'm surprised the article doesn't address this. The term was an informal, derogatory prison slang for an imprisoned male pressed into homosexual service, long outdated now but used in the early half of the 20th century, when these lyrics were likely written. Pointing this out in the article helps give context to the lyrics. Perhaps the problem is that a definitive source can't be located? That's a challenge among we wikipedians: articles that cannot be completed because it's hard to scare up the obscure study in a university archive (or some place similar) that validates an otherwise unsourced, oral tradition. It would be great if it could be added, though. ShelbyMarion (talk) 20:14, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
