Our initial inspection revealed some serious safety concerns with the lamp cord. The plug was not polarized and had some exposed wire near the plug.
The 3 terminal socket was working so we are only needing to replace the lamp cord.

The new lamp cord goes up the lamp through the same path as the old lamp cord. Tie a UL knot below the socket. Attach the smooth wire from the lamp cord to the brass screw and the ribbed wire to the nickel screw. The nickel screw (common wire) shares the screw terminal with the bottom light wire. The other bottom light wire (hot) connects to the black screw on the socket.
Pull any cord slack from the base of the lamp so the socket shell will easily snap into the socket cap.
Plug in the lamp and test all the lights.
Fixed and ready for the next 30 years.
