… oh dear …
Barde on Barde, as best I can recall it. Not sure of the form (strathspey), but it works nicely as a slow wistful short ballad.
P stands for Paddy I suppose,
J for my love John; and the
double-u stands for false Willie-o, but
Johnny is the fairest man.
Johnny is the fairest man my love oh Johnny_ is the fairest man and I dont care what anybody says: for Johnny is the fairest man
Paul McKenna does a nice version of this song. I certainly wouldn’t call it a Strathspey though and at 8 bars long your transcription is little more than a riff.
Well said, No Cause for Alarm. OBD’s version great, but like PMB’s much better - love Rua MacMillan’s personality in it!
Don’t forget Planxty:
Anyone know another version? Maybe in G or D?
