The FCBCNCF text "C" is virtually identical to the Carter version Joe Offer entered above, including the instruction to yodel after the chorus following stanza 2. Very minor differences, years "roll" so slow, and the "gold ring" again. This song was collected in 1930 which would have been a year after the Carter recording.
