CHENY ARMSTRONG'S. Old-Time, Breakdown. Gerry Milnes finds sources in West Virginia who credit an old Richwood fiddler, Cheny Armstrong, for teaching this tune to others. "Patty on the Turnpike," a floating title, is sometimes employed for the melody.

Recorded source: Shanachie 6040, Gerry Milnes & Lorraine Lee Hammond - "Hell Up Coal Holler" (1999. Learned from recordings of W.Va. Edden Hammons, along with a version by John Johnson, who learned it from Armstrong as a boy).
