Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Davy, Davy' or 'Goin' Up The River'
The last two lines are the same as in a song we used to sing in the Jug band I was in. It was called Green corn, but it doesn't seem to be in DigiTrad.

All I want from this creation's
A li'l biddy wife with a big plantation
Two li'l boys to call me Papa,
One named Charley one named Davy
One likes peas and the other likes gravy,
One in the army one in the navy
Green corn! (Come along Charley)
Green corn! (Wadn' tell Polly)

The rest was mostly instrumental.
