SIXTEEN DAYS IN GEORGIA [1]. American, Reel (cut time). USA, West Virginia, Missouri. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'CC. Folklorist and collector John Lomax recorded one version of "Sixteen Days in Georgia" from the playing of fiddler J.D. Dillingham (accompanied by a banjo player identified only as "a friend") in Austin, Texas, in 1935 (Library of Congress AFS 00567 A01). The title appears in a list of traditional Ozarks Mountains fiddle tunes compiled by musicologist/folklorist Vance Randolph, published in 1954. See the related tune "Fourteen Days in Georgia" (Charles Wolfe {1997} calls “Sixteen Days in Georgia” Kessinger’s version of “the familiar” “Fourteen Days in Georgia”).
