I originally heard this tune in a set called ‘Minor Reels’, from an accordian player from Texas named Hugh Morrison. I had wanted to learn this tune from The Session, but I found that no one had submitted it as of yet. Burns’ Farewell sounds very good played in a set with the Old Pipe Reel, and has a simple structure.
It looks like a version of the tune (or *a* tune) of the song Goodnight And Joy Be With You All.
And so perhaps should be played without repeats.
Also called The Parting Glass.
