Other titles often heard are "Up Jumped Susie," "Hop up Susan," etc. "Wake up Susan" is a two-part tune and is in most of the older collections. Howe, in 1864, published "Mountain Dew," a different tune, also in the key of A but having four parts. I have heard various mixtures of these two tunes over the years. The first two strains of Vee Latty's version are fairly close to the original "Wake up Susan." The first part of "Picnic Romp" in Ira Ford matches the first part of "Wake up Susan." Recorded by Vee Latty.
Designated by Vee Latty as "Old Joe Clark" when he recorded it for me. In view of the characteristics of Bill Caton's tunes and the interpretation Bill gave to "Beaux of Oak Hill," I I believe this is one of Caton's tunes, even though Latty played it.
A Bill Caton tune as played by Vee Latty. This tune is taken from "Beaux of Oak Hill," found in many of the old tune collections. "Lonesome Katy" in Ford's book (p. 57) is comparable with "Beaux of Oak Hill"
