CAPTAIN GEORGE YOUR MONEY HAS COME. American, Country Rag (cut time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. A country rag from the playing of fiddler biography:Willie Narmour (1889-1961) and and playing partner, guitarist Shellie Smith (1895-1968), both from Carroll County, Mississippi. The tune, which is one of the first ones the duo recorded, is original with Narmour but the title is thought to be an invention made up with input from the recording company. Narmour's daughter, Hazel Wiggins, recalled "her father working out tunes, for which he and Smith had no names and which they couldn't commit to paper, because neither could read nor write music. Names of these nostalgic tunes were created simply because there had to be titles for the record labels. Titles, such as "Captain George Has Your Money Come," "Where the Southern Crosses the Dog", "Sweet Milk & Peaches Breakdown," "Winona Echoes Waltz" and 'Who's Been Giving You Corn?' were products of discussions between the recording people and the artists "on the spot", Wiggins said"[1].
