Comments:

Moore said that he learned this tune from Amos Chase in Kansas. It was originally written by Tennessee fiddler Tommy Jackson, and named after a small community in Tennessee. Moore’s version has a somewhat jazzy/bluesy feel. It’s pretty straightforward, but watch out for slides from F natural to F#.
