My interpretation of a 1936 Lomax recording of Jimmie Strothers, issued on Folk Music in America Vol 11, Songs of Humor & hilarity Library of Congress 1978. Strothers sang and accompanied himself on a strummed banjo, I think probably a plectrum. This file replaces a poorly recorded one from 2006-02-26. Also, Mike Seeger has recorded a nice version, which includes a Henry Thomas-like panpipe solo. Also, this recording is done on an Olympus WS-310--my first try at it.
