New Lost City Ramblers, from Remembrance of Things to Come, Verve/Folkways FT/FTS-3018.  Album notes:

Learned from a recording of an 80-year old woman in Mena, Ark., recorded by Sidney Robertson, 1936. (AAFS 3236 Al)

This singer had a very wide repertoire of songs, and I understand that she would sing this one only for female company. It struck me that the song, textually and melodically, would fit well into the Kelly Harrell-Charlie Poole mountain chamber music style. It was also recorded in a less direct non-narrative form by theSouthern Melody Boys for Bluebird in the 1930's.
