FOR BOOTS. Old-Time, Waltz. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Composed by Gene Silberberg in honor of his friend Richard C. "Boots" Houlahan. Houlahan was a jazz trumpet player who came by his name because a neighborhood dog had died just before he was born. His older sister thought he was the dog's reincarnation, and applied the same name.
