To some, this might sound like the theme from the Beverly Hillbillies, and it should. They stole from Mr. Handy with great accuracy. Is nothing sacred? The original was recorded by Pops (Armstrong) many years ago and is a standard in most Dixieland band libraries.

The duet speaks for itself and I hope you enjoy playing it.
