GUEST,Puffenkinty Origins: History of 'My Good Old Man' (6) History of 'My Good Old Man' 10 Aug 03

There's a great song titled "My Good Old Man"
in which it becomes apparent that one of the speakers is
a ghost or "haint", and that she is "hainting" the man
of the story. Does any body know the origins
of this song, where it came from, who has recorded it?
It seems to be part of the tradition of "Haint" songs. Any
comments on this tradition would be appreciated also.
