That certainly fits in with the 'Pay Me' recording. Does it say what the actual actions were on the grunts?

In your historical references to cotton screwing do you have any indication as to how the songs were actually used?

BTW I have some more info on 'Haul the Woodpile Down', sheet music by Harrigan and Braham 1887. Is this well-know or is it worth posting on a new thread or on that minstrel thread?
