Although Gotcher is primarily known for his hash calls, this is a relatively rare example of him doing a singing square. Listeners may also enjoy the same dance as called by Gloria Rios Roth.

The original song was recorded by Bill Boyd and His Cowboy Ramblers, Bluebird 8422 A.

This hash routine is based on pretty standard (for 1970) Goal Post choreography. The final break uses the call Catch All Eight which was quite common at that time.
