Robert Hicks (aka Barbecue Bob) and Virgil Anderson, who were both born in 1902, have some interesting similarities in their versions of the "Poor Boy Long Ways From Home" family.

Hicks, "Poor Boy A Long Ways From Home":
"I'm a poor boy, I'm a long ways from home
I'm a poor boy, I'm a long ways from home
I'm a poor boy, ain't got nowhere to go....
Honey, give me long long distance phone
Now give me long distance phone
Honey, give me long distance phone
I wanna hear from my sweet mama back home...."

Anderson, "I'm A Poor Boy":
"So I'm a poor boy and a long old ways from home
Oh I'm a poor boy, got nowheres to go
I'm a poor boy, got nowheres to go....
Won't you hand me down that long distance phone
Won't you hand me down that long distance phone
I want to talk to my honey, want to talk to my baby at home...."
