Subject: RE: Origins: Go Tell Aunt Rhody
My Grandmother grew up in Zebulon, Georgia. Born May 19, 1894. Her "Aunt Carrie" had sung this to her when she was a child. She sang "Go Tell Aunt Tabby" to me throughout my childhood.

Go tell Aunt Tabby (3X)
the old grey goose is dead.

The one she's been savin' (3X)
to make her feather bed.

John Thomas killed her (3X)
he hit her on the head.

Bury her in the garden (3X)
the old grey goose is dead.
