Johnny Don’t Come Home Drunk

American old-timey reel. There are very many versions of this tune - the setting that I’ve posted is based on the version as played at the Hillgrove Porter Stores pub old-timey session, Bristol, UK.

New title

This was the first tune I ever learned on the fiddle, back in about 1985. This is pretty close to the tune I remember, but most American fiddlers would use lots of open a and d drones. I added the title I learned it under. Thanks for posting.
