This old tune has been recorded hundreds of times. I think it's an old civil war tune about a slippery toad that played a role in a key battle. I got together with some buddies, and this is our first attempt at playing it.

Great tune, J-Walk! Funny, I visited Antietam Battlefield this summer, and one of the park guides mentioned that tune as a favorite among the Confederate soldiers there. Apparently a Yankee soldier slipped on a toad, set off his rifle, and shot himself dead. At least that's how the story goes. A minor victory within a monumental defeat.
