Westphalia Waltz - G MajorWaltz

Author: Cotton Collins
Origin: USA - Texas

This tune was adapted into its current form and renamed in 1946 by fiddler Cotton Collins, who lived in Westphalia Texas. He may have heard a version it in Germany during World War Two, or perhaps in nearby Bremond, which was a Polish community. The bawdy 1920's Polish song called Pytala Sie Panii, "what she said" or "what she asked," uses the melody, and as does Wszystkie Rybki, which was later loosely translated as Dreamy Fish Waltz. Unsurprisingly, there may be even older precursors, perhaps as far back as midevil France. Joe Weed directed a documentary called Westphalia Waltz Story that is available on DVD.
