Next Jam - May 2nd, 2017, 7-9pm.

Jun 5, 2012

Here's two fun tunes that I recorded in a workshop by Terri "Fiddle Jammer" at Black Creek Fiddlers Reunion over the Memorial Day weekend.  We'll be sure to play these at the jam, easy chords, too.

Walking That Pretty Girl Home, key of G

Shoot That Turkey Buzzard, key of D from the repertoire of Kentucky fiddler Clyde Davenport, who learned it from his father, a Tennessee fiddler.
There are various verses sung to the tune:
Shoot that turkey buzzard, shoot that turkey buzzard,
Shoot that turkey buzzard, flyin' round the mountain.

Old hen cackle and chickens flew,
Rooster swore that he'd go, too.

Shoot old Davy Dugger, shoot old Davy Dugger,
Shoot old Davy Dugger, catch his wife an' hug 'er. (Rosenbaum/Chancey)

Shoot that turkey buzzard, shoot that turkey buzzard,
Blam!, blam!, caw!, caw! (Kuntz/Any Old Time)
