GUEST,Fretless Lyr Req: The Boatmen (fiddle tune) (20) RE: Lyr Req: The Boatmen (fiddle tune) 05 Dec 00

Elise's one line is all I've ever heard sung with the fiddle tune. Debbie McClatchy wrote some lyrics about the California Goldrush to the tune, modified the tune very slightly, and recorded it on her album with the Red Clay Ramblers. But for the canonical fiddle tune as performed today, Elise's line is it.
