WHERE IS MY OTHER FOOT? AKA and see "Oh My Foot,” "Peeler's Jacket (3),” “Rocky Road to Denver,” "Temperance Reel (The),” "Teetotaler's Reel (The).” American, Reel. USA, Missouri. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune, a variant of the well-known Irish “Temperence Reel,” was recorded under this title by the fiddler Ted Sharp, Hinman & Sharp (1933). Unfortunately almost nothing is known of the group, although Richard Nevins wrote in the 1972 that he thought the group hailed from central-eastern Arkansas. Missouri fiddler Gene Goforth (1921-2002) played it as “Rocky Road to Denver,” learned from his source, peripatetic fiddler Roy Wooliver. The first few measures of the first strain are also similar to the Scottish tune "Salt Fish and Dumplings" and the air "Cairding O't (The)."
