Unlike the even more famous "Go Tell Aunt Nancy
," this song has been fairly widely recorded. An arrangement by Pete Seeger (the son of Charles Seeger and his first wife Constance Edson) was recorded by The Weavers in 1951, and reached #2 on the Billboard Chart. The song has also been much parodied, some of the versions being unprintable!
