The Road to Ruin

This tune was written by Dale Russ and played on his album with Todd Denman Reeds and Rosin.
I found the abc on the website submitted by an uillean pipe player named Bill Reeder. Thanks Bill.

I like the way the tune starts with a dark tone to it and then lightens up.


I suspect the tune is actually in Amix, with Amaj accidentals in the B-part (much like Farewell to Erin).

No no, Amix is quite right, but with Amin accidentals in the A-part.
