One More Dance and Then …

I was prompted to post this following a recent discussion about strange tune names. Not of course a reel, but a 4/4 polka-style march.

I can’t remember my source of the tune, but I believe it was recorded by the New Victory Band.

I don’t recall ever playing it at a session - not even in an English one - although we have used it in our ceilidh band occasionally.

One More Dance and Then … . Then what? Just what exactly IS implied by that ellipsis?

Another dance? A goodnight kiss? I’ll Take you back to my place for a bit of nookie?

Answers on a postcard … 😉

In G Major

Thanks for posting that audio link, fenslodger!

When listenening to it, I noticed that they play it in GMaj.

So for anyone interested, here it is in that key:

One More Dance And Then, X:3

This tune was originally from ‘Johnson’s 200 Country Dances vol. 8’ and was lifted by David Wall and written in ‘The Ashover Book’ dated 1764. See the Village Music Project for more info.
The dotted crochet at the end of bar 4 is written as ‘A’ in Johnson, but ‘B’ in the Ashover Book. I think that is an error by Mr. Wall that has lasted down the ages, and it sounds odd to me. Nice tune, but doesn’t seem to be played much in Derbyshire.
