That's it right there, John. You chose my favorite version too. I first
heard this tune on a Continenal Airlines DC10 flight from Auckland to Honolulu via Pangopango in American Samoa.
The in air entertainment system allowed for any tune to be repeated every hour or so. It was a long wait for the next performance. After we returned to Auckland a fortnight or so latter, I put into action a plan to obtain a copy of Over The Waterfall. But having no other information other than the Continenat flight number and time of travel this was not an easy job. Long story short, after a year or so of snail mail correspondence to and from the US, I bought a copy of the Grandpa Jones version - a double album on coal black vinyl, from a record store in Los Angeles, the tune that I had heard mid-air a year earlier.
According to the album liner notes, the tune is of unconfirmed origin, thought to have originated in England and called, The Song of the Journeyman, where the tune found a new home as a fiddle tune brought to the Appalachians by English settlers.
Thanks again for the video, John.
