Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Froggy Went A-Courtin'
L.W. Payne, Jr. wrote a paper on the song in 1926: "Some Texas versions of The Frog's Courting." The paper appeared in Rainbow in the Morning (Texas Folklore Society, 1926; reprinted Folklore Asssociates, 1965, pp. 5-48). In it there are 20 full Texas versions, along with its brief history and comaprative analysis. See also Peter Kennedy's Folksongs of Britain & Ireland (Cassell, 1975, no. 294) for bibliograpny and discography.
