Tune of the Day: Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss

Traditional American folk song

This old-timer used to be a favorite among American fiddlers and banjo players. It is known under many different names (“Pretty Little Pink”, “Western Country”), and many variations of the melody exist.

Fly around my pretty little miss
Fly around my daisy
Fly around my pretty little miss
You almost drive me crazy

This and other similar tunes seem to have originated sometime after the Civil War.
