"Wagner's Hornpipe" bears a faint resemblance to "Wagner" (or "Tennessee Wagoneer"), a well-known fiddle tune. Recorded by Red Williams, who stated it is of local Texas origin.
From Dallas, Texas
This tune is known by several titles. It was called "Richmond Polka" by Red Williams, who recorded it for me. The same title was used on a 78-rpm Brunswick record of about 1935 by Clark Kessinger. This tune is called "Redman's Reel" in Ford's book. A fiddler in Loudoun County, Virginia, advised me in 1962 that the title is "The Robert E. Lee Swing." Cy Kines has always known this tune as "The Rocky Road to Dublin."
This version is unlike the "Joe Turner . Blues" published in 1948 by Clayton F. Summy Co., Chicago, which mentions that Joe Turner was a policeman whose job it was to take prisoners from the I Memphis jail to the penitentiary in Nashville. W. C. Handy, famous blues composer, wrote a song "Joe Turner Blues," copyrighted in 1915. Recorded by Red Williams
This waltz appears to have been founded on the song, "Wednesday Night Waltz." A copy was published in a Carson J. Robinson song collection in 1936. Played by Red Williams
