Taken from the original sheet music at http://digitalcollections.baylor.edu/cdm/ref/collection/fa-spnc/id/33132 More info about Mills the composer and other tunes of this name may be found at https://thesession.org/tunes/5612 I originally learned this beautiful tune from a recording of Pennsylvania fiddler Jehile Kirkhuff. Don Messer recorded it, a century ago it was also on cylinders by outfits like the Edison Symphony Orchestra, including a guy adding the occasional loud "MOOOOOO!" - because it’s a barndance, see?
Frank Fallon and Jackie Roche’s Orchestras recorded the other tune of this name which Cuz Teahan played; this is a variant of Davy Davy Knick Knack: https://thesession.org/tunes/3697, combined with the 1st part of the Minstrel’s Fancy maybe? Old time Irish settings of that tune seem to always be in D, but the ones I’ve found online are all in G. The Flanagan Brothers recorded the KM barndance proper on one of their records.
I have a version of this transcribed from Jim and Mary Coogan’s lovely "Passing Time" CD:

Thanks Bill, I didn’t realize Jim had made a record. A friend got a D/C# Boxeen from him years ago, interesting accordion.
