Thread Name: froggie went a courtin
Subject: RE: froggie went a courtin
I might have the most off the wall version of this song yet! Someone let me know if you've ever heard of this version...

Froggie went a courtin' and he did ride, rinktum bottomage a cambo (phonetically), sword and buckler by his side, rinktum bottomage a cambo, combalero down the cairo, combalero cairo, strattalata bobolata bobolinktum, rinktum bottomage a cambo???

I haven't heard this version in about 11 years as my grandfather used to sing it to me and had a stroke that left him unable to talk. He recently passed and I became interested in this versions origin, if anyone can help.
