Thread Name: Lyr Req: Back Up and Push
Subject: origin/lyrics: Back Up and Push

I was wondering if anyone knew whether the well known fiddle tune Back Up and Push had any lyrics.

When was it first written and has anyone heard the Rubber Dolly lyrics sung to it as a fiddle song?

What is the origin of Rubber Dolly? Is Ella Fitzgerald's version the first jazz version?

Is "My Creole Belle" by Mississippi John Hurt the same song? Are there other versions of My Creole Belle and where did it originate?
