Tell me this isnt a heck of a good little jig… It came fom the fiddling of Mary Ann Pierson back in the 1930’s I lbelieve… in the state of Pennsylvania… and was taken down by my main man… Sam Bayard.

Bayard related the tune (in his ethnomusical expertise) to be a relative of "Peeler and the Goat", but he obviously was off his musical rocker with that comment. (He wasn’t always right…)
