Ever wondered where and how yodeling began? United States? Canada?

Switzerland. Nightfall was rapidly approaching and he had nowhere to sleep.
He went up to a farmhouse and asked the farmer if he could spend the night.
The farmer told him that he could sleep in the barn.
As the story goes, the farmer's daughter came down from upstairs and
asked her father, "Who is that man going into the barn?"
"That's some fellow traveling through," said the farmer. "He needs a
place to stay for the night, so I said he could sleep in the barn."
The daughter said, "Perhaps he is hungry." So she prepared him a plate
of food and took it out to the barn. About an hour later, the daughter
returned. Her clothing disheveled and straw in her hair. Straight up to
bed she went. The farmer's wife was very observant.
She then suggeste
d that perhaps the man was thirsty. So she fetched a
bottle of wine, took it out to the barn, and she too did not return for
several hours. Her clothing was askew, her blouse buttoned incorrectly and
her hair all messed up. She also headed straight to bed.
The next morning at sunrise the man in the barn got up and continued
on his journey, waving to the farmer as he left. When the daughter awoke
and learned that the visitor was gone, she broke into tears. "How could he
leave without even saying goodbye," she cried. "We made such passionate
love last night!"
"What?" shouted the father as he angrily ran out of the house looking
for the man, who by now was halfway up the mountain. The farmer screamed
up at him, "I'm going to get you! You had sex with my daughter!"
The man looked back down from the mountainside, cupped his hand
next to his mouth, and yelled out, "LAIDTHEOLADEETOO."
