My take on a tune from a WV compilation cd, called Banjo Legacy and played by Jim Costa.

According to the liner notes, Lee Blankenship, was from Grienbrier County, West Virginia and heard this tune being played by his father. Blankenship related a story about an Indian found dead at the Cold Knob Mountain area with items found in his possession taken from white settlers in a raid on the Frankford settlement. It was assumed that he been wounded and lost, thus the title. Blankenship was born around around 1900, was a lifelong resident of the county and learned to play on a home made fretless banjo
