Mark Ross Help: Origin of Villikins&Dinah tune (16) RE: Help: Origin of Villikins&Dinah tune 11 Nov 17


The tune is also used for a a song I learned in Missoula, Montana 40 years ago, called THE BUTTE MINERS SONG.

Here's a link to my recording of it;



My Sweetheart;s A Mule In The Mines/ The Butte Miners Song

I learned it from Jay Rummel, and it was written by a Butte miner named Jim Gallagher.
