The only Missouri fiddler who ever played this tune [or me was Jack Croy of Morgan County, Missouri. One 78-rpm fiddle record titled "Liberty" was issued several years ago, but the tune was entirely different. Played by Jack Harris in 1950.

From Jefferson, Harrison County, Texas

Notes

Versions heard in other states are not always as elaborate as played by Texas fiddlers. Accompanists will often overlook use of the E-minor chord in "Sally Johnson." Various fiddlers have confusedly intermingled "Sally Johnson" with "Katy HilL". Recorded by Jack Harris of Jefferson, Harrison County, Texas
