This is a lovely but challenging key-changing waltz from West Virginia fiddler Clark Kessinger. It has two parts, with the A part in the key of C and the B part in the key of F. He used a lot of vibrato, which is denoted by squiggly lines to the left of notes in the transcription that are to be played vibrato. Beware of some high notes the second time through (it goes up to a high D), and be careful of the timing.
