6-25-08 One of four songs recorded by Willie Brown in the 1920's, only two of which are still available. I usually do this one like he did it, on an acoustic in open G, but it works really well as a banjo tune too.

2-18-08 thumb lead... this is one of my favorite songs. I first heard it from Buell Kazee, but there's a GREAT version by Mr and Mrs John Sams on the "Mountain Music of Kentucky" album.
