The Happy Couple

Transcribed from the playing of Charlie Lennon on Turning the Tune: https://thesession.org/recordings/2652

The "A" part seems to be consistently different first and second time through, so I’ve written it out that way. Jaunty little tune - I haven’t got the sleeve notes to hand, so I’m not sure if this is an original composition or not…

Re: The Happy Couple

Yep. It is. According to the album info on here, anyway.
