From Plank Road Publishingarr. Mike Wilson
This old folk song has had at least three melodies and more verses than one might care to count. It has been recorded by many different artists in a folk or bluegrass style.
We've chosen three of the most "kid-friendly" verses and set them to an upbeat, two-beat, two-part arrangement. And it's in a minor key. Part 2 is optional, and the kit includes a rehearsal track for it. The song is laid out in the traditional style with an instrumental break at the end of each verse/chorus group. During the instrumental sections, students get to stomp and clap. What fun! (from Music K-8, Vol. 27, No. 4)
