Comments:

This is a really cool version of Billy in the Low Ground from Georgia fiddler Lowe Stokes. This version is crooked; every other line has an extra four beats. The last two beats in the ending were played on the guitar rather than the fiddle in the recording, but sound natural for the fiddler to play if so desired.
