Aha, an intermediate one, thanks, Reiver 2!!! (see, teeth is intermediate between head and eyeteeth).

How about dates? Anybody know the date of Ed McCurdy's version, the Reiver2 version, and the version from Offbeat Folk Songs? Not to mention Carl Sandburg, who seems to be very similar to Offbeat?

Although, sharpshootstress is an embellishment of sharpshooter, and I'm pretty sure that Offbeat went back to -er.

Wonder if in a few decades it'll be simpler again, which would fit your usual Gestalt theory...
