Leenia, the song, "Limber Jim" was collected in North Carolina. Neither the person who sang it (see the thread on "Limber Jim"), nor the person who collected it, Fletcher Collins, knew what "link and law" meant. However. given the context, it may be a "Southern" reference to "Lincoln Law" and the freeing of the slaves.
