GREEN MOUNTAIN [3], THE. American, Reel (whole or cut time). USA, south-central Kentucky. A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). AABB. Titon (2001) calls this a "stately local tune" unrelated to other "Green Mountain..." titles. However, a title appears in a list of traditional Ozarks Mountains fiddle tunes compiled by musicologist/folklorist Vance Randolph, published in 1954, which may or may not be musically related.
