"Bush in the Shucks" vs. "Chuck in the Bush". Are these the same tune or not?

The first one is Benny Thomasson's version of "Dry and Dusty" brother Lewis called it "Bush in the..." and it has similarities to the other more commonly known "D&D"
The other does not sound like either tune and thus not the same tune to my ears.

BTW, Earl White does a nice job on the tune "Shucking The Brush".... I play it almost every time our jam goes to D..!! Bush In The Shucks is definitely NOT the same as Shucking The Brush...

Was all of the above from the last chapter of Green Eggs and Ham?

You do remember that all old time tunes have several names and each name has several tunes behind them.!!!

I have a tape where Benny plays Bush in the Shucks crossed tuned. He says Bryant Houston liked the tune but didn't want to cross tune. he then came up with Shuck in the Bush.  He also says that he forgot the tune name of Bush in the Shucks for the County record and mistakenly called it Dry and Dusty.
