COWBOY'S DREAM , THE. American, Reel (cut time). USA, Ohio. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Silberberg): AABB (Kuntz): AABB' (Phillips). John McCutcheon identifies "Cowboy's Dream" as an Ohio tune, although its origins are somewhat obscure. Kerry Blech says the tune was played by Barnesville, Ohio, fiddler John W. Hutchison (1915-1979), from whom it was learned by fiddler Greg Dearth who was playing with Hutchison's sons in a bluegrass band for a time. Hutchison says he learned many of his tunes from "'old man' Bondy, an Irishman," although whether this reel was one is not known. Dearth later played with the Hot Mud Family, who Blech thinks "were probably the main conduit for this tune getting spread around." Gus Meade (2002) links the tune "Rachel (1)" with "Cowboy's Dream."
