And the subject came up here recently and I was reminded this wasn’t on site yet. I’ll check and see if I’ve a name for it later… Here’s the discussion, and source for the above link to and MP3, that lead to this contribution ~

### “You’re Welcome Home Royal Charlie”

That didn’t take long. It was right under my nose… 8-)

Page 89: "You’re Welcome Home Royal Charlie" ~ from Johnny Doherty

There are some slight differences between this transcription and the book’s. The linked to audio offers only the first two parts of this. For comparison, here’s a simplified transcription from the book of the third part, no double stops or ornaments given ~

There were no great differences between the first and third parts I’ve given and those in the book…

Very similar to Johnnie Cope

It IS Johnnie Cope - albeit, a very mangled version.

It doesn’t end with Johnny Cope either… ;-)

### “Johnny Cope” ~ unquestioned genetics…

### “After The Battle Of Aughrim”

When is one person’s way with a melody not just another take but a mangling? And in making such a judgement, which is the mangled and which the mangling? Based on what criteria?

Personally I enjoy JD’s way with this, whatever its origins or relationships…

I dont see it as a mangling because there are different takes on Johnnie Cope… one of which I play without the third part… And JD’s way with this melody is very cool indeed

Thanks for this, Ceol.
