banjocircus Origins: Pigeon Pie - Black Country Song??? (18) Origins: Pigeon Pie 31 Aug 11

In the 1934 book Caddy Woodlawn, set during the Civil War, a character sings (about Passenger Pigeons):

When I can shoot my rifle clear
At pigeons in the sky,
I'll bid farewell to pork and beans
And live on pigeon pie

Does anybody know if this was a real song, and if so, where words and a melody can be found?
