SWEETEST FLOWER WALTZ. American, Waltz (3/4 time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). The tune was recorded by the the group The East Texas Serenaders in Dallas, Texas, at the beginning of December, 1927. The tune is credited on their later Decca recording (1937) to the group's fiddler, Daniel H. Williams (the Serenaders also consisted of John Munnerlyn, tenor banjo, Cloet Hamman, guitar, and Henry Bogan, cello). However, there is a report that Williams learned it from a northern fiddler named Mr. Brigsley.
