Subject: RE: Song info:
I'm with Ole Bull. Where is this early song? Where is the evidence that it was originally a song? [My grandfather's house was near the Missouri river. When it flooded he came 10 miles west to live with us. Almost every evening we'd go where we could see how high the water was on his tall chimney. When the flood receeded it left mud on the floor, but the walls were cleaner than pre-flood. This was called spring housecleaning.]
