Should I try this before quitting?

Can't quite remember where I first heard this tune, but I've played it for years...not even sure it's Barlow Knife, but that's what someone told me it was when I played it years ago...so its Barlow Knife from here on out. Have an older version on my page, but decided to funk this one up a bit...In fCFCD again...
