There was a very nice Second Edition of this book published in 1997 by the University Press of Kentucky. Looks like you shouldn't have to pay more than thirty bucks for a copy through bookfinder.com. The original Oak Publications First Edition came out in 1965. The Second Edition has four songs more than the original book's 77 songs. Here's the index of the 1997 book. I'm marked the four added songs with an asterisk.
