Melody-Only Transcription (PDF)

Loosely based on a version I found in some old tunebook.

The name suggests that it comes from Ireland. I sometimes play this cross-tuned AEAE, and sometimes in standard GDAE tuning. It's a little easier cross-tunes. Play it fast.

The Digital Library of Appalachia has an interesting field recording of Wilson Douglas playing this as a three-part tune, that I hope to eventually transcribe for this site. Link
