There’s a lot of slurring in this tune, but I haven’t yet nailed all the slurs so here’s the melody only.
This is my first submission to The Session; I’ve learned many songs from here so I thought it was time to pay back a little 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
Oops, had put it down as Dmaj. It’s Gmaj of course. Updated it.
From various old Scottish collections including the Skye collection. The Irish version is called Ne’er Shall I We’en Her. https://thesession.org/tunes/803
