Notes: Here is Crowe's take on the Flatt and Scruggs chestnut, recorded in 1975 for Rounder 0044 "J. D. Crowe and the New South" but not released until Cracker Barrell's re-release in 2002. The first (low) break is one of the greatest IMHO, in which Crowe "plays the words." The second (high) break is more improvisational. Both are full of goodies.

Hi Michael, Very nice tab if not a generic rendering by J. D. Crowe. I'd take Earl's beautiful imaginative version as it is just so well arranged--tuning and all...Jack

Hi Michael, I might add that I appreciate the advice you have given to me with regards to Earl's songs in the past...Jack
