Campbell's Farewell to Red Gap

Fiddlers, here's a great clip to learn this three part tune.
She plays it as a march, then faster as a reel.


Of course, it's played on the banjo!

Cherry River Line



Such a great lonesome tune!

CHERRY RIVER LINE

Well it's Lonesome down here
It's lonesome all the time
It's lonesome down here 
On this Cherry River line

Told my little girl
Told her all I can
I'll find me another woman
You can get you another man

Now she's gone away
She left me here to leave
Some other runner's daughter 
In the middle of her week

Where'd you get those high-top shoes
And the dress you wear so fine
I got the shoes from a railroad man
And the dress from a driver in the mine

Well it's Lonesome down here
It's lonesome all the time
It's lonesome down here 
On this Cherry River line
