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

West Virginia fiddler Melvin Wine learned this from his father. The title may relate to a cake walk song of the pre-minstrel era. Walk Chalk Chicken with a Bowtie On is another title Melvin gave the tune, which is the old-time Tune of the Week for 3/4/16. I found the timing a bit odd, though it has a cheery feel.

Thanks! What an odd title though. The chicken wears a necktie, too. :€=\\\\||]
