Notes: This is a nice straightforward song that, to my knowledge, the Foggy Mountain Boys never recorded in the studio. However, there are several versions from other sources floating around, and I have tabbed two of Earl Scruggs’s breaks. The first is from a radio recording, WSM air checks, apparently from the middle or late 1950s. Earl’s break shows how he would depart from formulaic use of the standard rolls we associate with Scruggs style. The second break is from one of the Flatt and Scruggs tv shows on WSM, from July 1961. It can be found on #5 of the DVDs released by Shanachie, but you can also find it on youtube. This break also shows Earl’s propensity for improvisation in those days.
