LONESOME HILL. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Oklahoma. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Thede states that this version of "The Lonesome Hill" was the one played by the fiddler who took first prize in fiddling at the World's Columbian Exposition (Chicago, 1893), Will Connally. The melody has been linked to the "Dubuque" family of tunes (by Gus Meade).
