Field recording available on the CD/DVD set "One More Time": The Life and Music of Melvin Wine from the Augusta Heritage Center

This is one of the first old time tunes I learned from my fiddler friends back in Alabama (namely, Jim Holland and Bob White). My version can be found in the Austin Rogers Collection. It is surprisingly close to Melvin Wine's version, given the number of fiddlers it passed through to reach me (and my tendency to rearrange tunes, both deliberately and unwittingly). I'm guessing that either Melvin Wine or his father Bob Wine wrote this, but I don't know for sure.
