Amos, you are not confused; they are indeed two different songs.

As far as I Ride An Old Paint, I usually sing:

Old Bill Jones had two daughters and a song,
One went to college and the other went wrong.

While I don't think it's literally word-for-word, I believe it's quite similar to what I found in Carl Sandburg's American Songbag. I don't have the book handy at this moment, so I can't speak with absolute certainty.
