Explanation:
美国北卡罗莱纳州的传统舞曲, 试译: "退让的幸迪"?

Bean an Fir Rhua / Backstep Cindy
The first is an Irish air, literally, "Wife of the Red-haired Man." The second half is some old-time dance music from the hills of North Carolina. The guitar tuning is DADGAD from bottom to top, as it is with most of my music.

"Ray Alden (1981) believes it to be "one of the many dance tunes that made its way down through Virginia into the Round Peak section of North Carolina at the turn of the century." Tommy Jarrell has pointed out that this family of melodies is known as "Holly Ding" above the "Mountain" (the Blue Ridge chain separating NC and VA) and "Back Step Cindy" below the "Mountain" (Jarrell's "Old Time Step Back Cindy" is melodically related to Wade Ward's "Hollyding").
