Subject: RE: Origins: Ginny's Gone to Ohio/Ginny's Gone Away
There's a song in American Folk Tales and Songs by Richard Chase called "Johnny's Gone to Hilo." Perhaps this is another version of the same, although that's highly unlikely since the words are completely different. But the similarities of the titles are interesting. Chase collected it from John Hunt in Marion, Virginia.
