Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Mr. Spider (Little Body Rinctum)
I'm the originator of this thread. My grandmother grew up in rural West Tennessee and she couldn't remember where she first learned the song as a child but she thought in was in school.

Thanks for all the responses. It's kind of like a lot of old blues and folk songs in that there seem to be dozens of variations and it's almost impossible to trace it back to where it originated. Very interesting stuff indeed.
