My dad used to sing a version of this also...Although we live in Arkansas I think the song came with his great granddad from East Tenn. If you remember in Sgt. York, the movie, there is a guy riding a mule or jack singing Kingbo Nero Captain Kingbo. I have looked trying to find info on that movie song but have failed to find anything. I'm pretty sure it's a hills folks song...My ancestors came from Blount Co., Tenn.
