I first heard this tune on John Hartford's album Hamilton Ironworks. (Hartford plays it as a three-part tune, with the C part much like the B part I play for Waynesboro.) I liked Hartford's version so much that I started poking around for older "source" recordings, and found this one of Bob Walters. I had already transcribed one Bob Walters tune, but it was Coming Down from Denver that made me want to transcribe more.

This tune is easiest to play crosstuned to AEAE. Play it fast and cleanly.

This tune is a member of the following groups:

Waynesboro, Coming Down from Denver, Here and There, Hummingbird Reel
