“I’ll Kick the World Before Me” ~ it has been around awhile…

I’ve also seen it transcribed in D Dorian…

|: e | f2 d ecA AcA | ~
|: e | f2 f faf ege | ~

Yeah, sometimes that’s just the way you feel…when someone cuts you off without signalling in traffic, when folks try to make three or more lanes out of two ~ forcing you against or over the curve or in the path of an oncoming cyclist… I try to just give space for such hogs, but sometimes they catch you off guard. Curiously, the largest percentage are the large ~ 4-wheel drive utility vehicles and so-called luxury cars… There’s the ocassional van, but mostly ‘white-van man or woman’ are more courteous and considerate than the norm…

Now, I wonder, can you work out an appropriate analogy from that? :-/

Just so you know, if it wasn’t obvious, the tune is given twice here in two different keys…which doesn’t mean you couldn’t play them in a set together…

A minor Key to play with Bwced.

Sian Phillips plays this, on Gramundus, in a set with Bwced and Du Fel y Glo, but she plays ‘Gyrru’ in the Key of A minor (unless it’s A Dorian,…but i,m not a key master.) Here’s the ABC ; …….

Just read the first comment

I think i’ve just filled in the dots ! So the Abc is in the Key of D dorian , now I know.

“Gyrru’r Byd O’Mlaen” ~ twice more, D Dorian minus the ‘r’ ;-)

First Abram Wood’s transcription touched up a little…
