BUSH IN THE SHUCKS. AKA and see "Chuck in the Bush (2)," "Weber's Drift." Texas-Style, Reel (cut time). DDad tuning (fiddle). John Burke maintains that Luke Thomasson (Dallas, Texas) composed the tune known as "Bush in the Shucks" after a friend named John Bush. The story goes that Bush was observed to be rummaging around in the corn cobs and shucks near the outhouse; the tune commemorates the event. Not to be confused with "Shuck in the Bush," a different tune. "Weber's Drift", also in DDad tuning, is a version.
