Additional notes
Source for notated version : - Sammie Walker (1910-1987), Barren County, south-central Kentucky. "Sammie learned a lot of his tunes from his dad, Joe D. Walker. There were about three generations of Sammie's family that played old time music, and when we got together Sammie would stay in the background until the rest of them gave out. Then we would stay up late and play and smoke those little King Edward cigars and he would tell me about the old fiddlers he grew up around. They all learned a whole lot of their fiddling from the Carver family, especially Henry Carver, who in turn credited a man named John Gregory, who settled in Fountain Run from Virginia in the late 1800s....Anyhow, Sammie passed away in 1987, and I don't smoke King Edwards anymore").
