GUEST,Larry Origin: Blues Chase Up a Rabbit (27) RE: Origin: Blues Chase Up a Rabbit 27 Dec 08

I was just listening to Bukka White's "Remembrance of Charley Patton" where he suggested Charley Patton used to sing a version of this tune. Bukka said he was so moved by the line about the rabbit crying like a child that he wouldn't eat rabbit any more. Since Charley Patton died about 1931, I would guess it easily predates any of the citations above.
