"Mississippi Sawyer" is a traditional tune which appeared in print by 1842 at the latest. It is in the public domain worldwide.

Give your pinkie a workout! There is a temptation to rush through the first half, because it's pretty easy. But don't go so fast that you're forced to slow down when you hit the second, trickier part.

If you like, you can hear a MIDI file of "Mississippi Sawyer".
