I got this from the Fuzzy Mountain String Band album. The Fuzzies got it from Alan Jabbour, who collected it from Henry Reed. According to the FMSB album notes, Mr. Reed did not have a name for this tune but he agreed that it sounded pretty close to the better known tune by the same name. I really like the quirky beginning of the A part on an Em. My rendition is played in standard G tuning (gDGBD) on a 1903 Fairbanks Whyte Laydie #2.

Sounds minor key-ish kinda like Dan Gellert's version which he nicked from Frank Converse (the minstrel era banjoist)
