Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this version comes from Illinois fiddler Jim Reed on the Dear Old Illinois CD set, ready to be re-released soon. Cora Dye was the name of a musician who taught Mr. Reed, but the original name may have been Old Sage Friend. See the TOTW: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/305004. Hope you enjoy this delicate first effort to learn the tune.

Good song to hear while pushing north past Cape Girardeau

Where's that, Denton? I never realized that you can listen much as you pilot a boat, but what a good use of your work time. I've done so much listening over the years as I drove the 20 miles to my school. And praying!

Cape Girardeau MO on the Upper Miss. river. Across the river is East Cape Girardeau IL. A little ways above Cairo.

Interesting place names, Denton. I'm also working on a tune related to Going Down to Cairo. What is on your boat? People or freight?

I push barges of freight. The only people are a crew of 8. Looks like our turn boat will be on the Illiniois river. Flooding up here right now.

I'm working on Poor Man and Shoot That Turkey Buzzard this morning before I go on watch.

Two tunes I don't know with titles that match those muddied rivers you must be on. May good humor and music brighten your day!

UTUBE #JimSmoakAndTheLousianaHoneydrippers for Poor Man. He is teaching me songs I've never heard for the time being. Along with some I am familiar with.

Thanks, Rick and Ken. It has a hornpipe feel, doesn't it.
