Blasting on my living room speaker, that sounds great, Greg!!!

For the annecdote, I had my laptop set to the living room speaker to listen to a friend's son's MP4 and forgot about the patch. When I clicked your "Pigs" link, I was expecting a tiny, laptop sound. Boom... I got real music instead! bunny_pole_dancer

Thats awesome!  Thank you for letting me know and I appreciate it!  Been practicing this alot to the Bruce Molsky transatlantic version.  Around 88 or 90% speed.  Happy with progress so far.  Thanks again @bocaholly! 

EDIT: Posted version 2 today. I think thats the one you listened to.  Either way thanks!

@Mark thanks!

Cant give the link because of some suggestive language in it but if you want a different kind of take on this tune, Mark Knopfler put lyrics and a very cool drum groove and some nice overdriven electric guitar to it.  Look for Oklahoma Ponies.  Like I said has some lyrics that arent G rated in a couple of spots.  Bruce Molsky ( I think, he is listed as fiddle along with another gent ) plays fiddle in it at about half way through to the end.

GregW, first time I heard the tune was Jay Unger, Molly Mason and Bruce Molsky playing it here.
