Another obscure Bill Monroe instrumental. Only recorded versions I know of are from Monroe's Bean Blossom 79 album, Mike Compton's recent Stomp release on Acoustic Disc, and Michael Cleveland on Let Er Go Boys. I've tried learning this a few times on mandolin with both Compton and Butch Robins showing me parts of the melody, but my success on mandolin has been a dud. However, I came up with this banjo arrangement and I like it a lot (except for a few phrases here and there I need to work out)
