Tune Title

Played by Dallas Stamper in 1926 at a picnic in Dixon, Missouri. I never heard this tune again until about 1957, when a fiddler in Indiana played a similar version at a square dance. In 1968 I visited this fiddler, who reportedly had learned it years ago, minus any name, from an old fiddler living along the Wabash River.
