A Walk in the Shire

This tune is actually from a video game I played when I was a kid, but I find myself playing it from memory all the time. It’s written to sound like Hobbit music (Tolkien’s Irish) so I figure there could be a place for it here, despite the form being non-standard. Here’s the recording of the song:


I transcribed it exactly as I hear it on the recording, but the whistler (or midi player?) makes weird changes every now and then so there’s a few discrepancies. I actually arranged a slightly better version for my whistle that’s being posted under this

"Tolkien’s Irish"
