Trivia Question

Mike Seeger has just died (7 August 2009) aged 75. He was a great folk singer, and I have a 1964 Vanguard folk record collection which features him, accompanying himself on an Autoharp, singing a biblical ballad that starts:

"Away by the waters so blue, the ladies were windin' their way, and Pharoah's little daughter stepped in the water, to bathe in the cool of the day."

To what incident in what book of the Old Testament does the song refer?

Choose the correct answer:

Genesis - Joseph meets Pharaoh's daughter while swimming, and becomes his trusted advisor. Exodus - The discovery of the baby Moses in the bulrushes. 1 Kings - Solomon meets (and later marries) Pharaoh's daughter. Ezekiel - In connection with the quotation "Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers."
