Notes: A simplified version of Eight More Miles to Louisville. I like playing this in A, so either capo 2 from G or tune up like Grandpa Jones to A. However, I don't know if Grandpa Jones ever played this on a Banjo, all the versions I have are on a guitar. Dave Hum plays a mean version (Scruggs Style) in A. Both Youtube versions are linked on the 1st page with lyrics. I've added a page 2 for the Chorus and a midi link (Dave Hum version in A) in case the Youtube links disappear. This is for the melody and back-up, there are other versions in Scruggs style available under the tabs menu. (I've put "to Louisville" in (paranthesis) because I live in Russellville, Arkansas and like to substitute "to Russellville" in my version when I play. Substitute your own 3 syllable town in your version, if you desire. Lou-is-ville, Russ-ell-ville, New-Or-leans, etc. Remember, Louisville is pronounced Louie-ville.
