I learned this from a recording of Fiddlin' Doc Roberts.  That version, which is much superior to mine, can be found here.

Comments:

Here's another tune that comes from Ireland. The Irish call it Over the Moor to Maggie and play it as a three part tune. Related tunes appear under different names.  As Waynesboro, I've only ever heard it as a two-part tune, but related tunes (such as Coming Down from Denver) sometimes appear with three parts.

I high recommend Fiddlin' Doc Roberts' version of this tune.  Many years ago, when I was first learning old time fiddle, my fiddling mentor Jim Holland gave me a recording of Doc Roberts' version.  I used it as an exercise in learning a tune from a recording.  The result was this version, which isn't as good as Doc Roberts' version.  Start with Doc's, and then look at the other versions to pick up variations.
