My mother and father sang this to me and my brother and sisters in the 1950's. Probably came down on my mother's side--she was born in Selma, Alabama, although my father was from southern Indiana and going "down to Tennessee" might have been something his forebears sang about.

Anyway, here is a link to a nice 1930's version on an old 78 rpm lp by the Pickard family:

Lovely old song--brings tears to my eyes, and I am a 62 year old man!
