Subject: RE: BS: Fireside Book of Favorite American Songs
This is the book in which the original lyrics for "Buckeye Jim" as it was collected and transcribed by Fletcher Collins from Mrs. Patty Newman of Elon College, NC, were published. It contains the chorus:

"Go limber, Jim, you can't go,
Go weave and spin, you can't go,
Buckeye Jim.
