I saw a YouTube clip of Solas in concert, and heard Winifred play this cracking tune, first one in the set. I knew I’d heard it somewhere, so I looked it up and lo and behold it’s on their The Words That Remain CD from 1998, track 2, written by none other than Winifred Horan herself.

I transcribed it the way she plays it the first time through on the CD, but you can get a feel for her variations from the YouTube clip. On the CD, in the tenth measure of the A part, she slides up to the C note first time through. Couldn’t figure how to notate that in abc though. Crackin’ tune, surprised it wasn’t already here.
