As my research on Lena Turbyfill deepens, I have the following to offer:

apparently Lena performed a sort of vaudeville act for the local elementary school in Elk Park, North Carolina a couple of times...

all the lyrics her niece remembers are:

"I am an old man, with a stick in my hand
I go from place to place.
I'm not very good, but I try to be..."

audio: https://derekpiotr.files.wordpress.com/2022/05/i-am-an-old-man..._.mp3

some of these may be mis-remembered. any leads, anyone?
Lena would also perform "Ev'rybody Calls Me Honey" during these "variety" acts, if that places this mystery song in any sort of context.

Sorry. You're right. The dots fooled me.

would be great if someone knew. i assume it's some sort of tin pan alley-adjacent vaudeville thing.
