As with many popular songs, the tune was used for a square dance. Here's a YouTube with the audio Floyd Woodhull and his Old Tyme Masters. It's not a singing square, so the song lyric does not show up in the calling. (There's a transcription of the calls at the link.)

Recorded in 1941. RCA Victor Album C36. Record 36401. side A Captain Jinks

This was one of the ones my parents used to do.
