Mississippi Sawyer

DESCRIPTION: Fiddle tune, with no words listed, but very well known.
AUTHOR: unknown
EARLIEST DATE: 1921 (BrownSchinhanV)
KEYWORDS: nonballad fiddle
FOUND IN: US(SE)
REFERENCES (1 citation):
BrownSchinhanV 671, "Mississippi Lawyer" (1 tune)
NOTES: BrownSchinhanV gives only a tune for this, no words, but says it was "Sung by Miss Jewell Robbins." It is described as a "jog." It is of course a well-known fiddle tune, and we don't index fiddle tunes, but this is just enough of a dubious case that I put it in. But it probably should be excluded. - RBW
