Chittlin' Cookin' Time In Cheatham County in General Concertina Discussion Posted February 28, 2012 I've just added another entry to my Tune of the Month blog... for the first time in over three years. Seeing as how it's not monthly anymore, I suppose I should change the blog name. Until then, here it is, text, photo and an mp3 of me playing Chittlin' Cookin' Time In Cheatham County. Here is the posting text. Yum! These raw chittlins can be boiled or fried. Either way, this delightful dish smells the way you would expect, being the intestines of a hog. Just like a stinky cheese smells like rotten milk, yet delicious... these pig innards are good eating if you go for that sort of thing. Fiddlin' Arthur Smith recorded this song back in 1936 to the tune of St. James Infirmary Blues. According to Kirk McGee, these new words were written by him and "a fellow named Busby." Read all about that story here. I’ve recorded my version of this charming Tennessee song, accompanying myself on a Morse C/G 30 button Anglo concertina. Love the song Jody!!! Excellent!!
