GUEST,Pete Peterson Origins: Polly Wolly Doodle (77* d) RE: Who wrote Polly Wolly Doodle 27 Jul 04

Well, Gus Meade's earliest date is 1882 in the "Yale Songster" so maybe Yale WAS aheard of Harvard if GUEST's datee of 1883 is correct. WHen I sing it I use a conglomerate of verses from Harry C. Browne (CO A2502) and the Skillet Lickers (CO 15200-D) with some bowlderization for political correctness.
Pete Peterson
PhD. Yale 1970 (but that was in another life)
