  1. What no fiddle?? I don’t think so. Not sure who made that famous with a fiddle, but it is so cool with a fiddle
    It was huge with all my country horse people and later in the country western bars. Pretty sure I have that right.


  2. Love this piece so much but have not heard this version. I have to look it up. I think I gave the original 45 version. I have to look. My mom loved this because my brother, who was born in 1961, would dance to this when he was a babe. She had fond memories of this and Wheels ( I think that’s what it’s called).
