According to the Fiddler's Companion, Joe Coleman was a shoemaker from Adair County in south central Kentucky, who in 1899 was convicted of murdering his wife. Claiming his innocence to the last, he reportedly played this tune while riding in the cart, sitting on his coffin on the way to the gallows. Don Couchie and I played it at our first jam session on Geezer Hill. Don is playing fiddle, I am three finger picking in open D on my semi-fretless Tubaphone.

Great tune for a fiddle-banjo duet and you duetted it nicely.
