Subject: BUFFALO SKINNERS - Origins, Anyone?
Dear Mudcatters:

I have always like the tune 'Buffalo Skinners', which I only know from the old Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band album ("Jug Band Music"). Does anyone know of any earlier traditional (possibly Celtic) tunes with the same underlying melody? It sure rolls nicely off the pennywhistle, and I wondered if the lyrics had been laid over an older tune.

Thanks,

Tom Dowling
