Some Pumpkins is another fitting companion to Corn Shucks Rag (1908) its form being AABBACCC with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude before the final C-strain.
The cover of the original sheet music shows a dapper sauntering young man, hands in pockets, puffing a cigarillo, a walking cane hung from his left wrist and sporting a prominent fob watch - the epitome of ragtime elegance. He is surrounded by suspended mostly smiling yellow cut-out pumpkins. What this all has to do with this jolly march and two-step itself is beyond the editor - an absolute must however for a Halloween concert!
Some Pumpkins was published by W.B. Allen Music Co., Columbia, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
