X:1 T:Simpson County [1] N:From the playing of Jim Bowles (1903-1993, Rock Bridge, south-central Monroe County, N:Kentucky), recorded in 1973 in the field by Bruce Greene. M:C| L:1/8 R:Reel N:Mr. Bowles consistently used half notes at the cadences and at the end of phrases, dropping N:a beat or two, but he would often add the pick-up beat to the next phrase, making some of his N:cadences in 2/4 and some in 3/4 time. N:The last 2 and 1/2 measures of lines 1, 3 and 5 in the transcription are a melodic phrase from Felix N:McGlennon's British music hall song "Her golden hair was hanging down her back."
