Here's an interesting tune with vocals. I have presented the fiddle part and the vocals separately. The second page of the transcription gives the order in which to do the fiddle and vocal parts. If you find it confusing, please let me know so that I can clarify it. I want these transcriptions to be as understandable as possible.

Melvin Wine pronounced the word ewe like the word owe. I had never heard it pronounced that way before; I've always pronounced ewe like ewww, which is the word I say when I smell a skunk. But Wine's pronunciation just sounds right.
