DOWN HOME RAG [1]. American, Country Rag (2/4 time). USA, Missouri, Georgia. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Christeson reports that the Herman Brothers "Hell Among the Yearlings" (Broadway 8165) is the same as "Down Home Rag (1)". However, there are other "Down Home Rags" in Missouri, unrelated tunes. Drew Beisswenger (2008) also finds that a ragtime piece composed in 1911 by Wilbur Sweatman by the title is also unrelated.
