Back in the 60's in Greenwich Village there was a rumour going around that someone didn't know this song. It seemed like everyone new it. Dave Van Ronk used to do it, among many, many others. My memory being what it is, I can only dredge up a couple of verses, and they may not be exactly right..

    When I go by Baltimore, 
Need no carpet on my floor
Come along and go with me
Let's go down to Galillee

Green, Green Rock road
Prominading Green
Tell me who you love,
Tell me who you love

Bukka took a soda cracker
Does your Grandma chew tobacca?
If your Grandma chews tobacca
Bukka took a soda cracker

Where are all the old Gaslight Cafe gang these days?

Any help here will be appreciated. I want to dust this one off..
