Tim & Mollie O'Brien recorded it on their album "Take Me Back," 1988.

At Mollie O'Brien's website, it says "trad., additional lyrics by Tim O'Brien."

A Utah bluegrass band called Lincoln Highway performs it. You can hear the complete song (very nicely done) at their website. The lyrics are nearly the same as those above, except the words "Back, turn, and swing" are omitted. They don't say where they learned it.

Paul & Win Grace and Family, of Columbia, MO, have recorded it, as described in this article at The Old-Time Herald.
