As I recall, I learned this one from Mark Gunther. I'm not sure where he might have gotten it. It is in G and not like Billy in the Low Ground. Recorded 7/20/07. Chirps

I heard this one from some old fiddlers in Illinois. Some fiddlers don't play many 6/8 tunes but it seems that if they play any at all its this one and/or Irish Washerwoman. Chirps 10/3/12

Mary Jo Murray requested this one. I plan to include it on CHR VOL 6, so here is a preview. This is the way I recall the tune. I always used the 1st spelling- Garry has it by the 2nd. That's the correct one no doubt. For a long while I had this title attached to the tune Indian Corn due to an old tape tune list transcription error. Some of you may have heard me play that as Ol's tune. Not so, this is really it. Both may be found in Dear Old Illinois.
