Played on the guitar in open D (DADF#AD from low to high). Originally published in 1860. Go to http://www.kansasmemory.org/item/208635 for more info. One of these days I'm going to work out a version on the banjo.

I think this hymn was first written around 1880 or so by the Rev. Josiah K. Atwood. I've heard a few different versions over the years, including a great one from my friend Bonnie, but I think I was finally driven to work out an arrangement after listening to Hobart Smith. Mac Traynham and Shay Garriock also have a nice fiddle and banjo take on their "Turkey on the Mountain" album. My friend Meghan Dudle on fiddle (fiddle is tuned to DDAD), and I'm playing a Menzies gut strung tack-banjo in standard tuned down to D.

This is another one from Corpse Reviver, a group I play with that focuses on the music found on the Anthology of American Folk Music. I'm on the banjo (in double D), Jillian Rae is on the fiddle and is also singing, and Mikkel Beckman is on the percussion.
