EVANSVILLE. American, Reel. USA, Missouri. G Major. Howard Marshall writes: "We play this in the key of G major...Evansville is now just a sign by the railroad tracks, a tiny unrealised railroad town a few miles from the farm where I was born, on the Randolph-Monroe County line in central Missouri. The tune was popularized by 'old man Dalton' (Charlie Dalton), a good local dance fiddler in former times."
