Garrett's version first appeared throughout his story "The Foreign Hand Tie", which was first published in 1961. In 1987 Garrett's version was reprinted as a single poem in "Takeoff Too!", a collection of Garrett's fiction, and attributed to Garrett. At that time Garrett was in a coma and unable to explain the provenance of the poem.
