I know so little about this tune - my band and I found it in an Irish song book (that I can’t remember the name of) and put it with another hornpipe that I wrote.

There’s no name given in the book, so we’ve started to call it Bread. We’re not entirely sure why.

DrugCrazed, do you really mean to have those 7/8 bars at the end of the A part? It also looks like you typed f instead of F for the last note of bar 3 in the last line.

Compare with this:

I shouldn’t write ABC while drunk…

I gave it a quick skim but drunk me didn’t spot the 7/8 bars and missed a 2 after the G. Fixed it now.
