Over the Road
Back to Over the Road
OVER THE ROAD. American, March (2/4 time). USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune sounds Scottish to Bayard (1981), who thinks is could be a development of a once-popular tune called "You're Welcome Charlie Stewart" or perhaps a descendent of "Roy's Wife of Aldivalloch."
