GUEST,Puffenkinty Lyr Req: Kitty Wells (Bishop) (5) Kitty Ellen 01 Feb 04

Does anybody know anything about the song
"Kitty Ellen"? It is NOT a version of Barbra Allen.

My grandfather sang it to me when I was very small.
I remember it was about a man who loved a lovely
girl. The only line I
remember is
    "When I heard that she was dead,
    I laid my banjo down and cried."

I think he learned it when he traveled to the South.
