This transcription is based on a performance by Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys from April 8th, 1946, recorded for what are commonly referred to as the Tiffany Transcriptions.

There are a lot of different versions of Jesse Polka out there. This is a relatively simple interpretation, with just two sections. The marking D.C. al Fine means go back to the start, and play to the spot marked Fine. In other words, end with the ‘A’ section.

I transcribed this for the Golden Horse Ranch Band, who always need more polkas.
