Jimmy Borsdorf used to play a version of this tune. I haven't heard anybody else play it till now. Would love to know more about its history.

Fiddler's Companion says Kirk McGee of the Grand Ole Opry was the source.

It's on the Folkways vinyl recording "Milk 'em in the Evening Blues" (FTS 31007 Stereo or FT 1007 Mono), the McGee Brothers and Arthur Smith and played on the fiddle by Kirk McGee accompanied by Arthur Smith on the banjo.
