Melody composed by Billy Simon in 1925 to accompany lyrics written by the cowboy poet Charles Badger Clark in 1907. I am playing a 3-string mountain dulcimer made of cherry and redwood by Terry McCafferty and tuned CGc. I play the tune once in C, then modulate to F, and then go back to C for the tag. (Attentive listeners can hear a squeaky door opening and closing shortly after the 2:00 point.)

Thanks for listening, Rob.  And yes, I love my McCafferty.  It has a big, balanced sound and is super responsive to your fingers on the fretboard.

That was great!  One of my favorites to play and sing. Those McCaffertys really sound good. I have a student who plays one.
