Mrrzy: (Assuming you meant me, not Art Thieme,) the version in The Flying Cloud, per my spot-checking, was like the version Joe gave (also from M.C. Dean, at one remove)--there was no additional verse either around the spot you mentioned or elsewhere. You can read this book at Google Books (also available as a free download). It has many lumber camp and "Irish" music hall songs.
