Here's my old version of this old tune the way I learned it back around 1981 from Mr. Bo Norris of Ward, SC, complete with the jagged old bowing like he used when he played this tune. This is one of the first tunes that I ever learned, and I'm pretty much playing it the same old way I played it when I first learned it. Mr. Bo would be over 100 years old if her were still alive. He died back in the early 1980s not long after I learned a handful of tunes from him.

One of my favorite tunes - and nicely played.

This version's fiddled differently than the one Tommy Jarrell played - that I guess Tommy got from his father. But I can't say I prefer one over the other.

I guess I need to learn this version too. :-)
