I'm most familiar with the Jimmy Martin / Nitty Gritty Dirt Band version of the song:

Not a fan of the remix though, that took a little bit of the 'front porch' feel out of it.

Right wrong in between I have the first ten bars down where I can play it in my sleep . I now own this tune ten bars of it now on to learn the last ten or eleven ,. it is very similar to the first ten but it goes past the 5th fret oh dread LOL I i will have it down soon . I think I like this one better than Angeline the baker . they are both good ones to play . love the sound of this wow what a tune , the people that write this stuff are truly blessed people. I would put up a MP3 but the entire board is full won't let me . when I get it to memory I feel I am vindicated and have arrived , but to where I don't know I am just having fun learning wwheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Just over look me, I really am enjoying this .

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

Thats the butter on my toast that is the gravy over my biscuits . Thanks for all the replies on my playing . I do try although I may miss the mark at times .I just love the sound of some blue grass tunes . Sad but not sad .

Great job Ken,

Something different, I like it. Glad your hands are better and you can play more again!

Good job Welder. Won't be long until it rolls right off those finger tips that the ears control.

Sounds good.
