Colonel Sanford C. Faulkner (1806-1874), an American fiddle player and teller of tall tales, tells the story of a mountain fiddler he met while traveling in Pope County, Arkansas in 1840. The story was so often repeated that Faulkner himself became known as the Arkansas Traveler.

Lyrics for Arkansas Traveler
Oh once upon a time in Arkansas
An old man sat in his little cabin door,
And fiddled at a tune that he liked to hear,
A jolly old tune that he play’d by ear.
It was raining hard but the fiddler didn’t care
He saw’d away at the popular air,
Tho’ his roof tree leaked like a water fall
That didn’t seem to bother the man at all.
