Five comments

I sea "C’s" that should bee "c’s", dew ewe see what eye mean?

Looks like your ABC’s just have that one error (the upper case C’s should be lower case), but I’ve never heard the tune before, so you’ll have to tell us. So here it is, "corrected":

(P.S. When you post a tune on the site, it would be nice if you could post some comments, like where you got the tune from, etc…just some background would be nice!)

Meanwhile, my grammar school English teacher is rolling in her grave…

I have way more adjectives in my vocabulary than "nice". Really!

Shorty’s —I like it

If the sheetmusic is correct, and the sound file with it, I LOVE this tune. I will have to learn it. It sounds hard, we’ll see if it is.

The c

Yes, jaychoons, I think it must be a C6, it just fits better play the c at an octove higher than it has been written. (For the fiddlers, play two on A instead of three on G as written.)

Yes youre right about the c

I am a bit unfamiliar with abc notation and I guess I messed it up a bit
