Dave Shiflett: Music

Possum Got A Peg Leg (Instrumental)

A few years ago I fell in with some old time players, whose tunes often include animals: "Nail the Catfish to the Tree," "Old Piss" (allegedly about a mule) and countless tunes about dogs. This is my version of an old time tune, featuring a possum with a store-bought leg, which is no doubt quite handsome.
