The Roud Folksong Index classifies this song as a version of Roud 4957. A Roud number search returns only one version which pre-dates Lunsford's 1924 recording of the same song on Okeh 40155.

Lunsford said of this song, "I've known it since 1901 when I heard Fred Moody, then a high school boy, sing it down in Burke County." [1]

These are good grounds for treating this composition as public domain.
