Write me a few short lines. What Key?

Can anyone help? I'm trying to find out the key of Tony Mcphee's version of the Fred Mcdowell song Write me a few short lines.
Here's the version

Can't watch the video cause I'm at work, but Fred does it open G or A.

That song works very well on banjo too. 8)

Play in open G (DGDGBD low to high). The IV chord is just a C shape which in that tuning gives you the 7th in the bass.
