The folk song "Swing And Turn, Jubilee" serves as the basis for the soundtrack, created by Phil Cook. This is an old standard appalachian party song or "zipper verse" song. A live version was recorded in 1963 by Jean Ritchie and Doc Watson. Another version was recorded by Carolyn Hester on Columbia Records, featuring a young Bob Dylan on harmonica. Alexandra Sauser-Monning and Amelia Meath have performed the song live as a duo and also as members of Mountain Man.
