OLD COW, SHE CROSSED THE ROAD, THE. AKA - "Old Cow Crossed the Road," "Old Cow Crossing the Road." AKA and see "Cow Cross' the Road (1)." American, Country Rag or Polka. C Major ('A' part) & F Major ('B' part). The piece seems to have derived from a song tune, and is associated with western Virginia (Galax) and northwestern N.C. fiddlers. A tune by this name was in the repertoire of Galax, Virginia, fiddler Herbert Higgins in the 1930's, later recorded by Bert Edwards of Mt. Airy, N.C.
