Oddly, although this song is sometimes attributed to Leadbelly—when it isn't called "traditional"—I can't find any recordings of him singing it.

I was a big fan of the Chad Mitchell Trio, and I much enjoyed their recording
of this song, but it was only when I heard the Bill Staines recording that I
realized that by putting that "my boy" at the end of the first line they had
removed the rhyme of Brazos and molasses. I think the song sounds better
with the rhyme.

Abby (and anyone else that may be interested)--
The entire Folkways catalog is available on CD--some as re-mastered CDs, mostly on the Smithsonian Folkways label) and the rest on custom CDs.

CAMSCO Music is very pleased to announce that all the Folkways Cds, custom or otherwise, are available from CAMSCO at a discount--custom Cds, f'rinstance, that Smithsonian Folkways sells for $20 are discounted to $16.

There's a ton of fine, fine music available.
