But there's one more red caboose song, recorded by Henry Thomas, sometime between 1927 and 1929.
Thomas' version was recorded in Chicago on October 5, 1927, his second of five known recording sessions, all of which produced, unfortunately, only 23 known sides. Fortunate that they were produced, unfortunate that there were not more.
The later version by Moffitt was obviously a derivative. One need only compare.
