Joe Offer Origins: Little Red Wing / Union Maid (44) RE: Origins: Little Red Wing / Union Maid 12 Dec 20

The authorship of the "little tip" verse is nicely sidestepped in the Smithsonian/Folkways Ella Jenkins Camp Songs compilation album:
    ” It is one of Ella’s favorite songs, and she sings it with Bucky Halker on an album built around ideas of unity, cooperation, and labor unions called A Union of Friends Pulling Together (SFW 45046). The last
    verse was written later, and reflects changes in women’s roles in
    the workplace that have occurred since Woody wrote the song
