Reel 84, Item 2
Mr. Sizemore: One time I got a letter from Cane Hill, and they says,
Mr. Sizemore, we're going to have a fiddlin' contest up here and we
want you to come up and be with us." And I had little enough sense
to go, you know, thinkin' I'd meet some o' them fellers up there.
And I went. And they had, oh, lots o' fiddlers.
Mitchell: When was this, sir?
Sizemore: Oh, hit was twenty years ago, And so, when it wound up,
I got third money. And that's all I did get. Third money. Feller-by-
the-name-of (can't make out the name) beat me out of first money.
(The old man hums a bar or two, then takes it over with the fiddle. I
don't believe the winner at the Cane Hill Fiddlin' Contest played
"Ragtime Annie" better than Mr. Sizemore does on this tape. MCP)
