Collected from: Mrs. T.M. Davis Fayetteville, Ark. April 30, 1962
Reel 405, Item 15
"This woman was goin' to be killed if she didn't have a riddle, so a friend of hers made this riddle:
As I went out and in again
From the dead the living came
Six there is and seven there'll be And this will set the virgin free."
"This friend of hers went out the gate and into the woods and found a nest with six eggs in it. The mother bird made seven.
And, she gave the riddle and they could not guess it and it
saved the virgin."
