This is a challenging version of Leather Britches from well-known Kentucky fiddler Doc Roberts. He recorded this as a medley, immediately followed by Big Eared Mule, so it doesn't have an ending as such. The high C#s in the B part can be hard to reach, so you might want to temporarily switch to second position. Detailed instructions are included on the second page of the transcription.
