X:1 T:Kidd and the Bacon N:From the playing of Wallace Thompson (Green N:County, central Kentucky). Recorded in the N:field in June, 1988, by Bruce Green. N:This is the air to a song by Thompson's great grandfather, to N:commemorate an uncollected debt and to mock the person N:who stiffed him. It was sung in the region, and, according to Thompson N:his great grandfather :was hauled into court over the it. Charges were N:dismissed. Wallace says he couldn't play it 'exactly like they played N:it in the old days' and came up with his own version.
