Gibb, thanks for posting those lyrics. I don't know why I didn't think to actually look in Harlow! The "obvious"....! And thanks for checking out the Western Folklore article. Those snippets can drive you crazy. I would be interested to see if anyone turns up any other reference to this song. I couldn't find it in the minstrel collections, but it was a quick look.
