Thread Name: froggie went a courtin
Subject: RE: froggie went a courtin
Im from Louisana and my uncle buzz busby sang it as a banjo tune like this: "froggy went a courtin he did ride, aw haw aw haw" "froggy went a courtin he did ride, aw haw aw haw" "froggy went a courtin he did ride, duelin pistols by his side" "froggy went a courtin he did ride, aw haw aw haw"
"He said miss mousy wont you marry me aw haw aw haw he said miss mousy wont you marry me aw haw aw haw. He said missy mousy wont you marry me and will go live under a big shade tree. Oh missy mousy wont you marry me aw haw aw haw"
It has a combo horse clippity clop rythum and banjo train rythum. I dont know if he every recorded it but it was popular with Grand Ole Opry banjo players in the 50's.
