WISH(ED) I HAD MY TIME AGAIN. AKA - "I Wish I had My Time again." American, Reel (cut time). USA, Kentucky. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. Another variant of the "Sally Ann (1)" "Great Big Taters in Sandy Land" "Sail away Ladies (1)" tune family. One of only two tunes (along with "Hook and Line") recorded in Richmond, Indiana, for Gennett Records in April, 1933, by the Owingsville, Bath County, northeastern Kentucky duo of the Hatton Brothers (Asa Martin supplied the dance calls on the recording). The brothers, Vertner (born 1883) and Jess (born 1895), were from Bath County, Kentucky, but were living in Clark County at the time of their Gennett session. Soon afterwards, the brothers gave up music and it is thought that Jess, the younger brother, became a full time minister in the Mormon Church. The brothers died sometime in the 1960's.
