Thanks, Richie. Would love to find some recordings of those songs.

In the too much attention to miniscule details department, seems pretty clear that the version A that Perrow printed should have been "at all" and not "a tall" Here in the south, and in the central Appalachians "at all" could sound like a tall (atauwl, aytauwl or attaul) but not likely "a tall" is accurate.
