Seeking Lomax book containing the words to "Grasshopper Sittin' on a Hickory Limb." We know the song, but want to find the book, publisher(?), date(?) with the song in it.

Thanks tons, Casey

I've found songs containing the words

"grasshopper sittin' on a sweet-potato vine"
"grasshopper sittin' on a railroad track" and
"jaybird sittin' on a hickory limb"

but nothing with the words

"grasshopper sittin' on a hickory limb".

Furthermore, neither "grasshopper sittin' on" nor "sittin' on a hickory" turned up in any book by anyone named Lomax, although several books by John and Alan Lomax are indexed by Google.
