That's it, Joe. I got Mike mixed up with Rufus. The "All Night Long" chorus in Brown is a surprise.
Thanks, Sorcha. That ref. is to a review of "Animal Folksongs," not a text. But it's a year earlier than the Ballad Index date.
A lot of older Southern folks say "beastes" and "waspes."
I know there are more verses. Somebody on Mudcat must know a few.
