    Wolfe Brothers String Band. Noticed on the vid that one of the musicians was a member of the Wolfe Brothers, did some Googling, found a preview at CDBaby. You can buy it for a buck.

    Lots of hits from the Google search, mostly (as you found) instrumental. I'd speculate that the lyrics were a later addition, but don't know, of course.

    Mighty fine ! Thanks so much, Allen, think I can scare up a buck under the sofa cushions. Gonna have to do some more research on the origin of the lyrics, I suspect they came later, but
