"Arkansas Traveler" is an amusing song of a philosophical old man who could not give a damn, pardon me ladies!, whether it rains or not. He is entirely uninterested and just wants to play his fiddle. A man after my heart! Anyway, I found this song in 100 Best Folk Songs For Recorder
along with John Riley
and Black is the color of my true love's hair
when looking for something to perform with Maike Weyerts. Although I sing it for my personal pleasure occasionally, I generally accompany Maike with my concertina.
