Bayard's source, fiddler Walter Neal, learned the tune from Abel Browning but nevertheless gave his own name to it, either from affection for the tune or because the correct name was not remembered.

Source for notated version: Walter Neal (Armstrong County, Pa., 1952) [Bayard].

Printed sources: Bayard (Dance to the Fiddle), 1981; No. 613, p. 543.
