X:1 T:Puncheon Floor [4] N:From the playing of fiddler William Mosses "Mose" Coffman (1905-1994), N:Lewisburg, Greenbrier County, southeast W.Va.). The tune is called "Puncheon Floor" on N:the youtube.com caption, but this may be a mistake. Compare with Clyde Davenport's N:"Puncheon Camps", perhaps a cognate tune.
