CBG guru Lou LaManna gave me a copy of his latest CD at the 2019 Pennsylvania Cigar Box Guitar Festival. There is one song on the album that immediately got stuck in my head. I figured out the chords and decided to do a rendition of it. Lou told me it was originally a minstrel song written by a man named Daniel Emmet.

Thanks Nancy & Ambrose. You are correct AD. That's the guy. Apparently this is an old minstrel song that Lou covered that I in turn covered. LOL.
