GUEST,jag Origins: James Madison Carpenter- Child Ballads 4 (114* d) RE: Origins: James Madison Carpenter- Child Ballads 4 25 Jul 18


Apologies if this doesn't belong, but as the "Henry my son" variant has been mentioned is this relevant Henry my son, George Dunn, Staffordshire,1971 ? It has a different set of 'contents' to the Irish version above.

When does 'Henry my son' first appear? Do we know where the stripped down 'green and yeller' parody as sung by Pete Seeger came from?
