Banjo player Scotty Wiseman of the popular 1940’s and 50’s country duo Lulu Belle and Scotty wrote this one. It’s been recorded by many including Jim & Jesse and The Virginia Boys, Willie Nelson, and Edie Brickell. I play it on the TB-1 conversion with rhythm and fingerpicking guitar, plus harmony croaking on the chorus.  I've posted the banjo tab in the BHO tab library.

Another one of my favorites to sing and play. Our arrangements are different, but the idea is the same:

I love the way you stay on the melody so people can follow along and sing if they so desire.

Thanks for posting.

Chuck, as you probably know, Scotty Wiseman played a flathead RB-Granada that probably was the banjo that ended up in Sonny Osborne's hands. Jim Mills's book recounts what is known of the provenance of this banjo.

Thank you, Michael. I didn’t know that about Scotty’s banjo, thanks for that. yes
...that would have been the banjo that revived Sonny's interest in music back in the late 1970's?

Yes, Sonny said he was energized by discovering the Granada at Tom McKinney's house. It was an excellent-sounding banjo, no doubt about it.
