Dear Ed,

The correct title, according to 'Blues,An Anthology' edited by the man 
himself is 'Got No Mo Home Dan A Dog'

 It has been played in a number of styles. The first stain was written the 
way it was sung, around 1890 by a Negro quartet in Florence.

Interesting but does not entirely answer your question.

All the best

Ivor Jones
