LOST INDIAN [9]. AKA and see "Ninth of January," "Old Time Eighth of January." American, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. A 'crooked' tune in both parts (with an extra beat added in each ending cadence). In the repertoire of Alton Jones. Similarites to Thede's Oklahoma-collected "Lost Indian (1) (The)," and to Bob Holt's "Ninth of January." Drew Beisswenger (2008) also hears resemblance in the 2nd part of this tune and that of the well-known "Eighth of January" (a different tune than "Old Time Eighth of January"). There are the characteristic "Lost Indian" "whoops" sung at intervals in Jones's recording.
