FIVE MILES (OUT OF TOWN) [1]. Not to be confused with what us usually called "Five Miles from Town" in Thede which is a different tune. It is on Missouri fiddler Charlie Walden's list of '100 essential Missouri fiddle tunes' and has been recorded by such Missouri fiddlers as Cyril Stinnett and Dwight Lamb. Hans Nathan (Dan Emmett and Negro Minstrelsy, Univ. of Oklahoma Press, 1962, p. 93) mentions that 'Five Miles Out of Town' was the name of an old blackface minstrel dance or series of steps. Similar melodic material to the widespread Dubuque <div class="mw-ext-score" data-midi="/w/images/lilypond/e/6/e625lh79pwwbsrabwuy16wfe3rnv9ed/e625lh79.midi"><img src="/w/images/lilypond/e/6/e625lh79pwwbsrabwuy16wfe3rnv9ed/e625lh79.png" width="697" height="59" alt=" X:1 M:C| L:1/8 K:D A,B,DE D2 DE|FABF A4|BAdA BAFE|1 DEFD ED B,:|2 DFED D4|| "/></div> or "Old Dubuque" family of tunes.
