I love this version of Waynesboro by Kentucky fiddler Walter McNew.  He learned it from his father, and said "he liked that old tune; he played that a lot."

The A and B parts are reversed from how Doc Roberts recorded it.  Also, look out for the B-flats, which give it a bluesy or jazzy feel that I just love.
