Also played in C

The original tune was called "Woodland Flowers" and was composed by a Scot, Felix Burns.

Woodland Flowers

I just hate it when players learn a tune that is a mere shadow of the orginal and call it something else, as in this case. It’s even worse when you can play the whole tune as written by Felix Burns, and end up trying to play along to this version.
