Subject: RE: Words to Berry Tree
Thanks, Bill.

I just remembered where I heard the verse. First, I remember reading it sometime in the late 40s or early 50s in a commentary on folk music by Burl Ives. Not too long after, a character named Bushrod Gentry (and why did I remember his name?) sang it in the movie The Kentuckians.
