Does anyone know the origins of “The Old Hen Cackled and the Rooster’s Gonna Crow”? The earliest reference I can find is Fiddlin John Carson’s excellent recording, but surely it predates that?

Wow, I just noticed a major error in the title, could someone with an editing cookie please delete the word “food”? Guess I shouldn’t be posting when I’m so exhausted!
