Lyrics

I came from ole Virginy from the county Acomac
I have no wealth to speak of 'cept de clothes upon my back
I can do the country hoe-down I can buck and wing to show down
And while I'm in the notion, just step back and watch my motion

I thoroughly enjoy the alternate activity of music from both hands . At least three songs in one.

Best version I've ever heard, I can't seem to find it anywhere else except here.

Very nice song, but why on the Monkees radio?!

This track is the best version I've ever heard. The tempo gives it a special feeling I just don't get in those done slower. Also, the composition of this one is just better.

Ragtime should never be played fast. This one included.

Second favorite Scott Joplin song after The Entertainer! ! ! ! ! ! !

However, I don't believe this is the original version of the song.

I enjoy the briskness of this rendition.

This is a great song but I think this version is played a bit too briskly with excessive staccato in some parts.

One of the best piano rag pieces ever!

Well said! It's virtually the epitome of ragtime and probably its greatest work (to say the least)!

Absolutely brilliant piano work by Scott Joplin
