Porter for Three

Another offering from composers Kevin Burke and Mark Graham.
As its name may suggest, it is the third polka in the Open House set.

Sometime down the line, I must have started to play this tune as a two part polka: I rediscovered the third part only during a last check before this submission! (Part 3 does make a perfectly good part 1, keeping part 2 in second position).

I now also realised that the 1st part is a Polka version of The Morning Star:

(There are hints of it too in the second part)

Porter for Three

My copy of this album has gone walkies but should the last 8 bars not be repeated?

that being the Open House album.

Yes, The last 8 bars (part 3) should be repeated.
The ABC I submitted did include a repeat sign but the sheetmusic poldergeist decided against it!

Re: Porter For Three

Here it is with the right repetition bars
