Comments:

This is an interesting tune from West Virginia fiddler Wilson Douglas. It’s rather different from the popular versions of Paddy on the Turnpike, but I do think it is related. The B part of this tune is crooked, with two extra beats appearing in the middle of its first line.

Cross-tune to AEAE.
