LITTLE HOME TO GO TO [2]. American, Reel. USA, Missouri. A Minor. AEae tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. A second tune of the same name in Missouri fiddler Bob Holt's repertory, perhaps related to "Little Home to Go to (1)." According to Holt's source, Doc Gentry, the tune arrived in Missouri before the turn of the 20th century from an Arkansas fiddler named Bob Wood. Wood was murdered on a saloon porch in Missouri by a man in a jealous rage over a woman [Beisswenger & McCann].
