BOYS, MY MONEY'S ALL GONE [1]. Old-Time, Breakdown. A Dorian or Mixolydian/Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB.
Charlie Bowman
Old-Time versions of "Money in Both Pockets" are sourced to a February, 1929, recording by East Tennessee fiddler Charlie Bowman [1] (1889-1962) and His Brothers, called "Moonshiner and His Money", which was Columbia Records first entree into recording early country music. "Moonshiner and His Money" was a skit with music, along the lines of the Skillet Licker's successful similar recordings. There were two tunes played in between banter, "Money in Both Pockets (3)" and "Boys My Money's All Gone (1)."
