*Notes:  This tune is courtesy of the US Library of Congress, https://www.loc.gov/item/afcreed000047/.  It was collected by Alan Jabbour, and the audio recording is likely by Henry Reed, probably recorded in the mid 1960s. It is played in an odd key, possibly C# or maybe an out of tune fiddle, and the sheet music transcription shows it in G.
