Editor Note

Identified as "Waynesburg" on AFS card (which also places it on side B). The spelling suggests that the tune was learned from the 1927 Gennett record made by Madison Co.'s Doc Roberts, who had learned it from his brother, who had in turn learned it from a local black fiddler named Owen Walker (b. 1857). That record spelled it "Waynesburgh."
