Michael J. Kennedy - Sorry I am

I have transcribed what I hear of Michael J. Kennedy’s take on this as heard on the 1977 album "Melodeon".

Sorry I Am, X:3

From the playing of Grey Larsen & André Marchand.

Grey has Michael’s recording available for listening:

From Grey’s notes (https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/sorry-i-am-for-what-i-have-done-to-marry-the-father-instead-of-the-son-john-joe-lynch-canoe-in-the-clouds/ ), Michael sang "Sorry I am for what I have done, sorry I am for what I have done, sorry I am for what I have done, to marry the father instead of the son" before starting the tune.
