Thread Name: Origin: Four in the Middle
Subject: Origin: Four in the Middle

I've been looking at play party song "Four in the Middle" that was popular in the midwest.

The earliest version I could find was collected in 1939 by Lomax. I'm not sure how this song relates to "Two in the Middle (Raging Canal) and "Raging Canoe" found in the DT.

There are two version of "Four in the Middle" in the Max Hunter collection.

Anyone have any info or related versions? Like a version of Hello Sally Brown?
