Christmas Time in the Morning
Back to Christmas Time in the Morning
CHRISTMAS TIME IN THE MORNING. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Mississippi. A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). A version of John Carson's "Christmas Time Will Soon Be Over," with the coarse strain being the song melody and the fine part a more modal-sounding melody than Carson's string band version. Tom Rankin (1985) believes the 2nd part to be "closer to the high part heard in "The Cuckoo's Nest" as, for example, played by Ed Haley from Logan County, West Virginia."
