Paddy On The Turnpike/Rakish Paddy

Lyrics: [none]
Music: Traditional

A traditonal fiddle tune played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage as an introduction to "Henry" in several concerts. I have sometimes seen it listed as "Paddy On The Turnpike" and sometimes as "Rakish Paddy" and I'm not sure which tune it is they played.

Also played by Jerry Garcia with the Hart Valley Drifters in 1962.
