Wednesday Night Waltz was most famously recorded by the Leake County Revelers (transcription here), who played it in D and transitioned out of the waltz temp to play a quickstep part in the middle of it.  Roberts played it in C and F, and omitted the quickstep part.  He began with an introduction in F, and then started with the main tune's A part in C.  He went back to F for the B part, and then ended with a variation of the A part in C.  This isn't a very difficult waltz, but there are some potentially tricky double-stops.
