X:1 T:Wabash Jig T:Hell on the Wabash [5] C:Dan Emmett M:2/4 L:1/8 R:Reel N:The tune was published with three sharps in Coes, yet some of the 'G' notes were N:indicated to be played sharped. I believe the tune is meant to be set in A mixolydian, N:and the key signature should have been in 2 sharps--a printer's error.

X: 1 T:Hell on the Wabash [5] M:C| L:1/8 B:Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) N:One flat (D minor) is indicated for the key in Ryan's published version, but N:I believe it should be 1 sharp (D mixolydian) instead, except where N:it is is indicated that the 'C' notes are to be sharped. Perhaps a N:printer's error.
