The "Marching Down to Old Quebec" is an interesting version.
"Five Old-Country Ballads" was submitted by George Lyman Kittredge to JAFL, based on texts collected by H. M. Belden, some of many not included in his book "Ballads and Songs Collected by the Missouri Folk-Lore Society." The book included only three of the singing games and two of the play party songs.
(I have finally succumbed and joined the American Folklore Society and paid the $15 extra for JSTOR access to JAFL).
