The Iron Horse

I’ve been enjoying playing this tune of late. Transcribed from ‘Thro’ Water, Earth & Stone’ a 1993 album by the group The Iron Horse, it was written for them by accordionist Sandy Brechin. Unrelated to the song of the same name.

Good time.
The final bars of each part didn’t resolve exactly as I anticipated but I’ve got the hang of it now. Mind you, a little bit of "quirkiness" is only to be expected from Sandy Brechin.
