MARY RUN AWAY WITH THE COON. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard (1981) calls it a "blackface minstrel piece," but was unable to trace it, save for noting a resemblance between it and an Irish air called "Leather Away with the Wattle O."

Source for notated version: Brown Hall (fiddler from Fayette County, Pa., 1956) [Bayard].

Printed sources: Bayard (Dance to the Fiddle), 1981; No. 193, pp. 150-151.
