A song I got from Turner's Banjo Journal #10, a British magazine of sheet music from the 1880s or 1890s. I think it was a yankophile thing populated mainly with American music. There was a banjo fad going on in England, an early example of American folk culture crossing over to the top of the pops. It was similar to the way that Howling Wolf's shows in Britain in the 1960s influenced the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton.

My 2nd try at this tune. Lots of flaws in this but it has a little something.

My first try blogged here:

I left the middle section as just chords. I'm hoping that people will fill it in with dancing or talking or soloing or whatever.

This song is fun to play.
