American Ballads and Folk Songs____________
The limb did break, oh, then, oh, then,
The limb did break, oh, thenó
The limb did break,
My neck did escape,
And I wish I was single again.
Young men take warning from this, from this,
Young men take warning from thisó
Be good to the first.
For the last is much worse,
And I wish I was single again.
DARLIN'*
"My brother, Frank Davidson, of Indiana University, was telling me of your visit to the University, He asked me to write you and give you some verse that he felt you might not have and would like.
"Five years ago I spent six weeks on a botany trip in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. Two mountaineer boys came to my camp and picked a cgee-tar' and sang their ballads."
