Mrs Ryan’s (polka)

This is a polka that is played at my sessions (in fact it was played this evening), but it’s only recently I’ve found out its name.
I have not been able to find it on the tune database, even though I carried out the advanced search for a characteristic sequence of notes in different keys (C, D, F and A, as well as G).

This is an old favourite… Here are a few more ways with it… ;-)
