Fiddle version

of a tune written and recorded by Johnny Smith in 1954, and made famous by the Seattle guitar group The Ventures (!) in the early 1960s. Absolutely not ITM, but great fun to play in any session, as was shown the other day in my local one: everybody somehow recognized the tune, but nobody linked it to the original, probably due to the fact that it was played by at least three fiddlers. Since the ‘Beer Barrel Polka’ was recently submitted here, with the wicked suggestion that somebody - anybody - might bring in ‘Roll Out The Barrel’, submitting ‘Walk Don’t Run’ suddenly doesn’t seem to be of such a bad taste.
By the way, the Ventures version is in C.
