Melvin Wine apparently played two versions of Yew Piney Mountain.  He apparently attributed this particular version to Benny Jarrell, son of famous North Carolina fiddler Tommy Jarrell.  This is a crooked version, with two extra measures in the B part.  Wine added an additional two beats to the B part in the third time through, but this appears to be an anomaly.  He played this with a lot of swing.  Cross-tune to AEAE.
