Perhaps not sung as often as it used to be, this song is historically important, as well as beautiful, and not hard to play. This version can work well both as an instrumental piece and as a vocal accompaniment. I think it would go well with a country fiddle, but have never had the chance to try it. Maybe even with a harmonica. If you get the opportunity to do so, please send us a video! Or at least email me at email@example.com and let me know how it went. Even if you decide not to play it, please read the history part of the commentary. This song may have helped prevent a war!
