Thanks very much for posting this and the video Bob.
A band I was in 20 years ago used to play a version of this tune as a fire-breathing polka. We got it from Cole's 1000 fiddle Tunes (aka Ryan's Mammoth Collection) By the time the tune had gotten to that printing press it had moved from Em to Am and evolved an A part that was twice as long as what's here. It had also smoothed out a lot of the syncopation in the B part. It was still credited to Clem Titus. Tim posted a video of that setting on this site a while ago.
