Chittlin' Cookin' Time In Cheatham County

I’ve recorded my version of this charming Tennessee song, accompanying myself on a Morse C/G 30 button Anglo concertina.
Yum! These raw chittlins can be boiled or fried. Either way, this delightful dish smells the way you would expect, being the intestines of a hog. Just like a stinky cheese smells like rotten milk, yet delicious,... these pig innards are good eating if you go for that sort of thing.

Fiddlin' Arthur Smith recorded this song back in 1936 to the tune of St. James Infirmary Blues. According to Kirk McGee, these new words were written by him and "a fellow named Busby." Read all about that story here.
