PROSPERITY SPECIAL. AKA and see "Pike's Peak," "Rat Cheese under the Hill." American, Reel (cut time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. A retitling of the tune called "Rat Cheese under the Hill" originally recorded by the Kessinger Brothers in 1929, and given the Bob Wills and band's western swing treatment. Perhaps Wills or Vocalion thought a topical, hopeful but blander title would sell better ("Prosperity is just ahead" was a catch phrase of the latter 1930's).
