Additional notes

Source for notated version : - Casey Jones (Livingston County, Missouri) [Christeson]. Jones (1910-1967) was an exponent of the northern Missouri style of fiddling, and was a contemporary and friend of the better-known Nebraska fiddler Bob Walters, with whom he shared tunes. Like Walters, Jones was a radio fiddler in the 1930's, sponsored by the Henry Fields See Company. Casey Jones was a radio fiddler for the Henry Fields Seed Co. Show in Iowa in the 1930's.
