In this backwoods musical, two feudin' families provide the basis of the action. The tale begins as the head of one family asks his son to marry the daughter of the other to bring peace. Unfortunately the son knows that it is his brother that really loves the girl and so takes off. The travelin' son has many adventures as he suffers from a rare condition that causes him to lose his memory every time he is struck upon the head. The only way he can regain it is to be splashed with water. While in one of his phases, he meets and falls in love with a young woman until he encounters water; he then forgets all about her and their romance. Romantic mayhem ensues until the whole mess is straightened out. Songs include: "If I Put My Heart in a Song," "Can't You Hear That Mountain Music?" "Thar She Comes," "Hillbilly Wedding," "Good Morning," and "Mama Don't 'Low No Bull Fiddle Playin' in Heah"
