Good to hear the US original. It was a hit in the UK for a Limey Skiffle player called Lonnie Donegan way back in the 1950s. I guessed it originated in the US given the lyrics but now I have heard the homespun version.

Lonnie Donegon is well remembered by me. As well as the song. Good video and accompaniment :) .
