In the recording from which I transcribed this tune, Wine played it in a melody with Yellow Rose of Texas. He played Yellow Rose of Texas a few times, then played through Skip to My Lou, and then did one last refrain of Yellow Rose of Texas. Skip to My Lou is transcribed here as ending with two pickup notes for Yellow Rose of Texas and followed by Wine's Yellow Rose of Texas refrain. If you just want to play Skip to My Lou, omit the last two notes.
