Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Leadbelly's Corn Bread Rough - Lyrics?
This missing bits seem to be:
...by Jail Bird (but it sounds like 'Jay Bird') Town, the people don't wait... / Old lady laid in a forest shank, hog came along and broke her back.../ Hog said (something) that's against the law, Hog came back with a broken jaw...
Well I suppose with a song like that, you can sing whatever fits the occasion!
