This tune has many different versions and titles, but mine comes from a night of music making at the annual party in Pinch, WV following The Vandalia Gathering. Ben Townsend and I had a rare chance to sit and play with John Morris. This version is inspired by what I learned that night from John. An ageold skill for the fiddler is the ability to pick up a tune on the spot, or at least to come up with something recognizable! I learned these words from the Highwoods String Band.
