Boys In The Bunkhouse

Newfoundland single. From the playing of Patrick Moran & Chris Andrews.

It’s also played down in Cmaj. A few other recordings: The Fogo Island Accordion Group, Gerald Freake, and Dorman Ralph.

And a few variations:
- 1st and 5th bars of A Part part could have an ornament in place of the opening eA, or, simply e2
- 4th bar of B Part could go "fe ce"
- 7th bar of B Part could go "Bc/d/ eB" or "Bc/d/ eG/A/"
- 8th bar of both parts could go "cA A2" or "eA A2", depending on the previous bar.
