The Drunkard

Welsh Jig found in "Cadw Twmpath" edited and arranged by Robert Huw Bowen.
The first and third bar of the ‘C’ part I’ve changed as i found what was written unnatural to play on the fiddle.
In the Score its;…. | dbf gdb |…. ych y fi.
The Welsh title for the tune is Y Dyn Meddw (The Man Drunk)

pronunciation is ;…. Uh Dun Meh…thee
have a few ciders and say ‘I’ve done many ’ things today……
