OLD TIME WAGONER. AKA and see "Wagoner (1)." The tune was recorded for the Library of Congress by musicologist/folklorist Vance Randolph, from Ozarks Mountains fiddlers in the early 1940's. The appellation "Old" or "Old-Time" to a fiddle tune was sometimes simply a means of denoting familiarity and longstanding presence in the local musical community, although at other times it could be applied to quite different tunes that the fiddler thought were either ancestral or an older tune with the same name (thus using "Old-Time" as a way of differentiating it from a more recent tune).
