Notes: There are many fun versions of this tune. There's a recording of Henry Reed over at (same as what's notated in the
Milliner Koken Collection), and another of Frank[lin] George available
through the Berea Digital Archives website. However, something about
about Rayna Gellert's version drew me in. I like the bounce, and surprisingly,
the repetition of it. Where H.Reed played two short A parts followed by two
short B's, in this version the A and B parts are doubled. Also, any extra
beat(s) H.Reed played have been left out, making this a square tune.

Listed as standard tuning but it seems Gellert plays it tuned ADAE. Just a note for those who also like her version.

That's right, ADAE. High Bass tuning.
