"Johnny Murphy’s Slide" - other possibilities

another way to take the final bar ~
~ | c2 e d^cd G3- G2 B :|
~ or with a lead-in ~
|: B |\
~ | c2 A d^cd G3- G2 :| ~ also ~ G3 G2 :|

The 2nd bar can also be played ~
~ | c2 c cfe d3- dBc | ~

The transcription Matt Cranitch gives in his "The Irish Fiddle Book", has the third beat of the 1st bar of the B-part as - a2 f - rather than as I’ve given it - age -… Also, the last bar, second beat he has as - dBd - instead of - d^cd - … His transcription also hasn’t any lead-ins…
