This one of three known compositions by this composer, it's a delightful composition and one of the many that incorporate a series of well known tunes of the day.  In  "Jailer bring me the keys" and "Great Big Sugar" I've written in some triplet grace notes to add a bit of extra interest but they can be omitted if you find them awkward to play. The score and midi are in the library....Steve.

Interesting! "Soap suds against the Fence" is sooooo close to the name of a common traditional fiddle-tune called "Soapsuds over the Fence" or "Throw the soap suds over the fence". Usually played in D maj...sounds nothing like this one!

I found a reference to a Brunswick recording called "Jailor Bring Back That Key"...but no recording of it or lyrics.

Shortnin' Bread is a common tune and pretty easy to recognize but "Great Big Sugar" and "Monin All My Sins Erway"...I couldn't find a reference for.

I like to see these medleys as often they upset the "Folk" process by notating what a given tune sounded like frozen in time. I don't think that happened here (except for Shortnin' Bread).

Hi Marc, good comments, I couldn't find any info about Lexhoizt, maybe some knowledge of his musical background may cast some light on this...Steve.
