I remember this tune from an old Frank Wakefield bluegrass album back in the early-mid eighties that I bought at a festival, probably in southern Missouri...

Frank Wakefield was born in 1934?

Apparently Joe Sullivan composed and published "Little Rock Getaway" for piano (Published in 1935)...

Kind of a Tin Pan Alley tune, I guess...

Sounds Ragtimey also...

Here's an early recording of Joe playing his piece on piano, circa 1935...
