A different, and perhaps older, Fire on the Mountain.
Can be played in standard tuning, but it’s really cool in cross key A (AEae)
from Isham Monday of Monroe County, Kentucky
slow version from Matt Brown
An uptempo version from Matt is on the Fiddle Club of the World blog.

Stumbled on notation for this Fire on the Mountain in the Spring, 2010 Fiddler Magazine (amazing what a bit of Saturday house cleaning will turn up) and I’ll bring it to class if anyone wants to take a look. It seems to illustrate the rhythm in the B part nicely. It also mentions that Mr. Monday often played it tuned down to F# or F and so I tried it. Kind of fun . . .
