Recording on the album Lewis Thomasson: Old Texas Fiddle Tunes Played the Old Way


This is Lewis Thomasson’s nice version of one of my favorite tunes. I’ve always called it Sail Away Ladies but it seems many fiddlers here in Texas have a thing for taters.

Cross-tune to AEAE.

This tune is a member of the following groups:


Sail Away Ladies, Sally Ann, Great Big Taters

Texas Fiddle
