BUTCHER'S ROW [2], THE. AKA and see "Far from Home." American, Reel. Southwestern Pa. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Not related to version #1. The 'A' part is similar to the minstrel piece "Root Hog." Bayard thought the title to be a "floating" one, i.e. attached to various tunes.

Source for notated version: Wilbur Neal (Jefferson County, Pa., 1948) [Bayard].

Printed source: Bayard (Dance to the Fiddle), 1981; No. 132, pp. 72-73.
