BROWNSTREAM. See "John Brown's Dream." North-east Kentucky fiddler Buddy Thomas recorded the tune under the "Stillhouse Branch" title but also knew the piece alternately as "Brown Stream," a mondegreen for "Brown's Dream (1)." He believed the "Brown Stream" title to refer to the stream of whiskey that emerges from a moonshine still, according to Mike Yates (2002).

Recorded source: Rounder 0032, Buddy Thomas (Northeast Ky.) - "Kitty Puss: Old Time Fiddle Music From Kentucky."
