OLD GRAY GOOSE. Old-Time, Breakdown. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. Source Fred Stoneking (son of fiddler Lee Stoneking) said he learned the tune from a tape of a contest fiddler from California. The melody does not appear to resemble other "Old Grey Goose" tunes (of either spelling of gray/grey).
