This song was written by Stephen Foster, who also gave us such classics as Camptown Races and Hard Times Come Again No More. In the Revelers’ version, the fiddle part consists of an intro and six breaks with vocals between each. The intro and breaks are very, very similar, and some of the breaks are almost exactly the same. The fiddle did not play an outro.
