IOWA CENTER. American, Listening Air (cut time). USA, Kentucky. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Kentucky fiddler Clyde Davenport  (1921-) was the only source for this tune, explains Titon (2001), which is played at a slow, listening pace. Titon believes some of the "swooping cadences" recall those in "Lost Girl."
