Nearly every occurrence has a title variation so actual tile is uncertain. Lots of minor title variations such as Ole Slew Foot, Ole Slewfoot, Old Slew-Foot and so on. Some larger variations including Slewfoot The Bear, Sluefoot and just plain Slewfoot.

Sometimes credited to Howard Hausey and James Webb or to Howard Hausey and Eddie Manney
