Melody-Only Transcription (PDF)


78rpm record (MP3 here)


Robertson and his family recorded this long waltz with mostly vocals, spanning two sides of a 78rpm record.  The only major fiddling was in the introduction, which I have transcribed here.  This is a fairly easy waltz, and could be worked into a larger arrangement with variations if desired.
