Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 3
The Dying Hobo version was recorded in 1926 by Kelly Harrell for Victor then three years later a cover version (?) was recorded by Dick Justice titled "One Cold December Day." I have the recording and the text on my site: http://bluegrassmessengers.com/one-cold-december-day--justice-wv-1929-rec.aspx
Curiosly this same version was collected twice by Roberts and once by Davis, I would assume disseminated from the recordings.
