Searching for a barrel!

Post by MusicOLib » 07 Jun 2014 16:59

I'm trying to track down a part-song which has in it lines something like:
"...we lost all our apparel
And had to go home in a barrel."

Can't think when I've sung it, what the first line might be, or who might have written it!
Does it ring a bell with anyone?

"When Pa Was A Little Boy", maybe?

You're right! Thanks so much! From the Yale Song Book, which I have lurking on the dusty shelves...
