Joe_F Origin: Hand Me Down My Walking Cane (33) RE: Origin: Hand Me Down My Walking Cane 04 Feb 19


The New Song Fest (1958) has the following verses that I do not see above:

Come on, Mamma, and go my bail,
And get me outta this gol dern jail.

Oh, if I die in New York State,
Ship my body back by freight.

Oh, if I die in Pinkham Notch,
Pack my body home in Scotch.

Oh, if I die on McIntyre,
Just throw my bones into the fire.

Oh, if I die in Colden One,
Put me in the oven till I'm done.

Oh, if I die in Colden Two,
Throw me into that mulligan stew.

Oh, if I die on Beaver Point,
Throw me into the fire until I'm boint.

The devil, he chase me round a stump,
Thought he was gonna catch me at every jump.

Probably added by hikers in the northeast US, tho I recognize only Pinkham Notch (White Mtns, NH).
