Got a Little Home to go to. American, Reel (cut time). A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'. This version of "Got a Little Home to go to/Little Home to go to" is sourced to southwestern Kentucky fiddler W.L. "Jake" Phelps (885-1977, Pea Ridge, near Elkhart, Todd County). Mr. Phelps was aged 88 at the time of his field recording in 1973 and had a bit of trouble remembering the tune. However, with some encouragement by field recorder Bruce Greene he was able to produce a creditable moderately paced version.
