Yes, Mike, minor variation of the sort that is associated with versions that have been in oral tradition for only a relatively short period.

Could v10 be 'He went down to sh! oh how he fried'? That would make much better sense.

Is the song not credited to anyone on the 78? Was it part of the barber shop quartet repertoire?
