The Old Yellow Dog Went Trottin' Thru' the Meetin' House
We are proud to introduce our newest lesson for Dulci-Bro players, The Old Yellow Dog Went Trottin' Thru' the Meetin' House, taught by Steve Eulberg. This is an old-time fiddle tune with the same melody line as the well-known tune, The Old Grey Mare. The music first appeared in print as "Down in Alabam' " in 1858.
This song was possibly written back in the Civil War Days, before there were screens on the windows or doors on the church. The inspiration for it may have come when an old yellow dog was seen walking through the church on a Sunday morning.
sample video, Steve plays through this old-time fiddle tune on the dulci-bro and explains why the words to the tune might vary - depending on where the person is from who is singing.
