Dug around and found my 1974 copy of "Snake Baked a Hoecake" In the notes J.S. says the song comes from Nepal. There is a YouTube video of the song being performed by John Adams in Oregon in 2009. He says the original song is about disillusionment, but the words are too complex and untrans;ltable, so Jody and his friends made up some words of their own. On the "snake " album, they used hand drums and a tamboura and whistles, flutes,guitars group singing and who knows what else-I've always liked this version just made a CD with it on it for my three grand-daughters ages 8,2 and three months- never knew quite where it came from and now I don't knw more than I did before but I really love the song
