GUEST,Lighter Origin: Long Time Ago/Hoosen Johnny/Sam Houston (54* d) RE: Origin: Long Time Ago/Hoosen Johnny/Sam Houston 05 Sep 13


Sorry people, but for at least the third time in as many days I posted extensive information on a song, only for Mudcat to go down while it was in transit, making it all disappear. Of course I should have saved it to a clipboard, but it was late and I was tired.

Gist: Clean and dirty versions of "The Big Black Bull" are (or were) sung all over the English-speaking world.

One notable singer was Civil War General Ambrose Burnside, while he was a cadet at West Point in the 1840s.
