I learned it from Kenny Hall, the great mandolin player and repository of old time music 30 years ago or so in California. If you asked where that song was from Kenny would point in the direction of stacks of 78's and say something to the effect of "3 feet up that second stack." By the way he was blind, also played fiddle and guitar, and was virtually a walking library of old time music styles, including Italian and Portugese tunes.
