Notes: Here is another great old country tune that works extremely well in bluegrass. The only recorded version I know of is Earl Taylor's, although there is a concert tape floating around of J. D. Crowe playing the song. It should be played at a moderate tempo, which facilitates playing the final measures in the second break, where I have indicated the right hand fingering. The blues run involves several notes played sequentially with the thumb. If you can't do this, alternate thumb and index finger. The third break is based on the aforementioned version by Crowe.
