YELLOW CAT [1], THE. American, Reel (cut time). USA, Oklahoma. D Major. ADae tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune has some resemblance to a Pennsylvania collected square dance tune in Bayard (1981, Dance to the Fiddle; No. 90, p. 55).

The yellow cat jumped
And he jumped on the wall.
The black cat jumped
And he couldn't jump a tall. ... (Thede)
