NEW RING ON MY HORN. Old-Time. The title appears in a list of traditional Ozarks Mountains fiddle tunes compiled by musicologist/folklorist Vance Randolph, published in 1954 in Midwest Folklore (Summer 1954, vol. IV: pp. 81-86). Randolph noted [1] that the title was bawdy: Horn refers to the erect penis, while new ring means a new girl's vagina.
