DROWNING CREEK BLUES. Old-Time, Blues. USA, Oklahoma. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. Mark Wilson links this tune with Uncle Dick Hutchinson's "Sharecropper's Blues." Hutchinson was an influential fiddler from the same are as recorded source Audrey Handle. The second strain is a bit 'crooked', with extra measures. Beisswenger & McCann note the many African-American influences in the tune.
