Thread Name: Origin: Old Abner's Shoes - What's the story?
Subject: Abner's shoes - What's the story?
The song title is either 'Abner's Shoes' or 'For I can whip the scoundrel, that stole old Abner's shoes'.

Does anybody have any idea about the origins of this song - was it based on a real incident?
