I wish I had my time again
The Only's lead a kids' parade.
Key of G or A. High part then low part. Some people repeat (two and two) but most play one and one. The high part goes right into the low part. The fiddler may cross-tune (GDGD or AEAE depending on key). This is not a square tune because the first part has 3 lines but the second part has 4 lines.
- Uncle Earl played it in A on their great CD. Also track #2 at Internet Archive. Also live [utoob].
- This guy does a cool clawhammer on a ukelele, key of C [utoob].
- Square dance on old recording by Hatton Brothers [utoob non-video]. I'd like to know what dance works with this tune.
- I have this tune on a cassette that came with a book of banjo tab called "Southern Clawhammer Banjo" (Kicking Mule Records), Bob Carlin editor, whereon this track is played by Susan Cahill. Amazon lists it but doesn't sell it.
- We have the Bigfoot CD by Rhys Jones and John Herrmann. It has a 6-minute secret track (#18) of Wish I had my Time Again, key of F. [Amazon clip]
- John Hartford added words: I wish we had our time again [utoob] (no video).
- Scratchy old fiddles on Berea archives: Bill Hatton, key of G. Thomas Travis, key of A flat. Travis Wells.
- Old LP of the Hatton Brothers [utoob non-video]
- Two guys sled down a on shovels while listening to Uncle Earl [utoob].
