INDIAN NATION [3]. American, Reel (cut time). G Major. GDad (Carpenter, Haley) or standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. West Virginia fiddler Ernie Carpenter's (1907-1997) and Ashland, Kenkucky, fiddler Ed Haley's (1885-1951) versions are clearly related, but somewhat distanced; Carpenter's tune is a simplified version of Haley's melody.
