HELL AMONG THE YEARLINGS [2]. American Reel (2/4 time). USA, Texas. A Minor/Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "Hell among the Yearlings [2]" is not related to "Hell Amongst the Yearlings (1)", but rather is a variation of "Cattle in the Cane (1)." Texas fiddler Eck Robertson (1887-1975, Borger, Texas), recorded by Mike Seegar in 1963, called the tune "Hell Among the Yearlings", although this may be a confusion of titles with one of the alternate names of "Cattle in the Cane" (of which this is a version). This latter tune is also called "Yearlings in the Canebrake", and perhaps the word 'yearlings' was retained in memory, but was recalled in the wrong title.
