Thread Name: Origin: Tell Old Bill
Subject: RE: Origin: Tell Old Bill
When my brother was a coffeehouse folksinger, back in the mid-sixties, he sang this with a (last?) verse that started:

"Little Bill asked when will Daddy get home this morning"

Anybody remember this verse -- and how it ended? I was very young at the time and can't recall.

I also remember that his version had the words "coroner's wagon" instead of "hurry-up wagon."
