DEVIL ON A/THE STUMP. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Kentucky. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB (Phillips/Stamper): AABB (Phillips/Jabbour). Some variations of this tune may go under the name "Devil in the Kitchen." The tune appears to be related to the "Wagner"/"Wagoner (1)" family of tunes. The musical motif of the first several measures of the first strain is shared with several tunes in 'C' major in American 'old-time' tradition, including "Lets go Boys the Party's over," "Battle of Droop Mountain," "Fun's All Over (1) (The)," and "Wag'ner One Step."
