X:1 T: Six Months N:Source to Native American fiddler Willie Dreadfulwater, who taught it to N:the father of Oklahoma fiddler Mack Cummings. Mack was recorded in N:the field in 1976 by Jim Renner. Renner says "When Mack was learning N:the tune, Willie came over to play the night before his death. Before leaving, N:Willie stood outside by the gate for a long time and said, 'I could play all night, N:I feel so lonesome.' A falling tree limb killed him the next day." N:The tied 'e' to 'f' notes in the first strain is to be played as drawn out slide, N:pitch ending between an 'f' natural and 'f' sharp note.
