Turkey in the Pea Patch played by Charlie Walden & Patt Plunkett

This is a Buddy Thomas tune I first heard played by Bob Holt of Ava, MO. There was an LP on Rounder (later a CD) called "Hop Up Kittypuss" by Thomas and that was Bob's source for the tune. Roger Cooper of Kentucky plays it as well, having learned it directly from Buddy.

This is video of Patt and me playing the tune at a workshop in San Francisco, CA, on January 30, 2015.

Below is a transcription of the tune.
