Stewie (and all of you): The Chubby Parker version is also available on Volume 1 of the wonderful new 2-volume CD set The Story That the Crow Told Me; Early American Rural Children's Songs from Yazoo (Shanachie). Nevins has done another truly outstanding job of gathering old records from the 20s and 30s and remastering them. These are GEMS!
I ought to mention that there is a nice "Frog Went a-Courtin'" by Anna and Julietta Canova on Volume 2. If you are into traditional folk music at all, and have kids (or grandkids) these two CDs are MUST HAVES! You can get 'em from Dick at Camsco, as I did, and Mudcat benefits, too.
