Waiting for Nancy
Back to Waiting for Nancy
WAITING FOR NANCY. Old-Time, Breakdown. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Susan Songer (The Portland Collection) says the tune was composed in 1972 by Curt Bouterse of San Diego, California, while waiting in Squibob Square in that city’s Old Town Historical Park for his eponymous Nancy. He told Songer it was originally written as a fretless banjo tune in the key of ‘C’, published in his Nixon's Farewell and Nine Other Tunes for Clawhammer Banjo, a small mimeographed pamphlet.
