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

This old-time Tune of the Week is quite old -- from the 1700's -- and comes from Sweden (and has a Swedish name if you check it out here: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/317105. I liked the fact that the lyrics describe the lonely but important work of the Swedish "cowgirl" who had to move and keep watch on the herds of cattle and goats at certain times of the year to allow the fields to be used for crop growing. I'm playing in open G in the key of Am.
