Clyde Davenport, well-known Kentucky fiddler, insisted that this tune was different from Leather Britches. However, the lyrics he gave for this tune are the same as those sometimes sung for Leather Britches, and the A part is very similar to parts of Leather Britches as played by other fiddlers. The B part seems rather unique. Davenport played this much more slowly than breakdown tempo. I really like this one.
