The Manchester Gallop

I believe this is to be an English tune.

A good to tune play for a ceilidh dance called: "The Cheltenham Flyer" - possibly set with with a tune called "Colne Royal" (a variant of "The Perfect Cure").

Note: 32-bars "straight down" (i.e. no repeats).

The Manchester Gallop - Addendum

I’ve just discovered that this tune is probably of Australian origin …

… and also that it is sometimes played with the "A" an "B" parts reversed.
