Thread Name: Origins: Go Tell Aunt Rhody
Subject: Lyr Add: GO TELL AUNT DINAH (from Lomax)
Version from Alabama, recorded by Lomax on his 1939 Southern Collecting Trip.

GO TELL AUNT DINAH

Go an' tell Aunt Dinah, Go an' tell Aunt Dinah,
Go an' tell Aunt Dinah, de old grey goose is dead.

Died last Friday, died last Friday,
Died last Friday with a pain in de back o' her head.

She was savin', she was savin'
She was savin' to make a feather bed.

Walkin' round dat green tree, walkin' round dat green tree
Walkin' round dat green tree, de ole grey goose is dead.
