Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'As I went down the new-cut road...'
Subject: RE: tinker & a toad connected to Billy Patterson LYR?
From The William and Mary Quarterly (Williamsburg, Va.: Institute of Early American History and Culture, 1964), page 86:

As I was going 'long the new cut road
I met a 'possum and a toad,
Every time the toad would jump
The 'possum hid behind a stump.
