Notes: Aren't the lyrics to that other tune, "Sally in the garden, sifting sand"? Either someone had a sense of humour changing that to "assisting Sam", or some hearing problems. I suspect it's the former. My source for this is "The Old-Time Fiddler's Repertory", - 245 Traditional Tunes, Compiled and edited by R.P.Christeson. This is mountain minor tuning capoed up two frets to match the fiddle. It's a departure for me since I normally arrange Irish tunes so I can play them at sessions, but I love old-timey music too. I don't think I had to change much for the banjo other than notate in cut-time instead of 2/4. Oh, and here is a cool link with the fiddler playing the tune. http://slippery-hill.com/RP/008-Sally.mp3 Cheers!
