I originally learned this tune in D & the A part is pretty much the melody of this tune when Bascom Lamar Lunsford collected it in Western North Carlonina. Over the years, I decided to add some parts to make it more train crash worthy. I first recorded this as a solo banjo piece on "A Secret Life Of Banjo" in 2003. Of course, this tune continues to change & evolve & here's the way I play it in 2017. Tim adds some very pretty back up chords to this on guitar.
