DD is right, Lydia Parrish was not the composer but she did collect it as did Allen Lomax. The stand out recording IMHO is from Lomax's Southern Journey collection, volume #13 "Earliest Times- Georgia Sea Islands Songs for Everyday Living" with Joe Armstrong leading the group. Kim & Reggie Harris also do a great job on this though I don't know if they have recorded it.
