X:1 T:Molly Put the Kettle On S:Tape recording of Manco Snead A:Cherokee, North Carolina N:Manco mumbles a bit, so it's unclear whether N:he says "Molly" or "Polly." Calling it "Molly" N:keeps it separate from the common song tune. I:/ above a note indicates a slide up to that note, I:+ above a note indicates sharpening, V indicates I:flattening. Manco changes his pitches more than I:a little.
