Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 4
If you look on my site here: http://bluegrassmessengers.com/daddy-be-gay--nye-oh-1937-rec-john-lomax.aspx
It might help answer the questions from the earlier post. I know Alan Lomax "collected" a similar version titled "Old Man under the Hill." Anyone have the lyrics and source for that version (Folk Songs of North America)?
Curiously the cowboy song (Farmer's Curst) appearing in 1910? by John Lomax has the same title. What is J. Lomax's source for the cowboy song?
