Q: You beat me to it with those references. Note well: Fife & Fife's
edition of Thorp also includes a couple of bawdy stanzas from a college student who said he'd learned the song from a "sheepherder in Idaho." They strongly resemble two from Oscar Brand's "Bawdy Western Songs" version, issued in 1960. Fife & Fife also have one bawdy stanza from the Lomax papers, if memory serves. A full bawdy text, again resembling Brand's, appears in Barre Toelken's "Morning Dew and Roses."
