Notes: There are many fun versions of this tune. There's a recording of Henry Reed over at slippery-hill.com (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.

Notes: This is a great beginner's song in the key of A. Most of the versions are done in the key of E but I don't know anyone who can sing it that high! If you need it transposed let me know.

Notes: I really liked this tune, so I learned it from the video on YouTube. It's deceptively simple for a four-parter. Stinnett gets a lot of music out of not so many notes sometimes.
