Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
Another tune from my first jam Don Couchie, sitting around our campsite one quiet morning at Clifftop, up on Geezer Hill. This is the classic western version of the tune which inspired Pee Wee King's 1950 C&W hit, complete with the third part, often called the "Little Egypt" part, that is sort of frowned upon in some old time circles. Don is playing the fiddle with those deep, gut wrenching drones, I am three finger picking on my semi-fretless Tubaphone, in open D tuning (aDF#AD).

A good tune played clean, pure, and simple. Lots to love there for sure.

Nice artistic performance by both of you.
