I am not sure about this (only almost sure) that this line is from one version of Trail of the Buffalo (alternative titles: 'Range of the Buffalo' or 'Hills of Mexico'). I haven't checked it out, but it might be from one of his numerous outings of this traditional ballad from 1988 onwards. My guess is based on the structure and a familiar ring of the lines cited as the context for the Boggy Creek reference. Another possibility is that it is from an other of those traditional ballads he has been performing a lot of recently ,both on albums and in concerts (by the way, there is an excellent compilation out, called Golden vanity with live performances of traditional songs from Bob concerts. Maybe you already got it.). I'll try to check it out - sometime.
