X:1 T:Pennington's Farewell T:Love Somebody N:From the playing of Street Butler (1904-1977, Elkton, Todd County, N:southwest Kentucky), recorded in the field by Bruce Greene, 1976. N:Butler told the story that an outlaw named Pennington from Sharon N:Grove, western Kentucky, was granted a last wish and "sat down on N:his coffin with his fiddle and played that tune" before he was hung. Butler N:claimed his banjo-playing acquaintance knew which farm Pennington was from. N:Butler was well aware the tune is usually called "Love Somebody."
