What a pitiful song! The lyrics are depressingly maudlin, even for a country song. I guess this is an archetypical country song where "my gal done left me" (thankfully such a phrase is not in the lyrics to Rockin' Yodel, however). The fiddle, immune to maudlin lyrics, plays an intro, two turnarounds, and an outro (very similar to the turnarounds).

This tune has no comments.
