    This week ended up in a tie, so I had to choose one. This week's winner is Way Down the Old Plank Road, which was submitted as an Old Time tune. I'm not familiar with it.

    Here is a discussion about the song from a few years ago on Mandolin Cafe, with lyrics and chords.

    Here's ABC from The Fiddler's Companion

    Nicely done Michael, your banjo playing really makes it work for me on this one. Great feeling to the whole tune.

    Those mandolin breaks are fantastic, Michael. Love that arrangement. "Hot dog!" "Glory!" and all the rest!

    This is a new tune/song on me - I like it, especially Michael's version - nice breaks.
