AKA" Merriweather", "Merriwether", "Meriwether". There are several versions of this tune as played by W.L. Phelps, Bruce Green, Clyde Davenport, and others. It is also in the Portland Collection, vol. 1; and Phillips Traditional American Fiddler, vol. 1. It is related to the Irish reels "Tom Ward’s Downfall" and "Mourne Mountains", at least in part A. This version I particularly like was played by the group "Three Times Through"
