The Road To Port Fairy

this tune was written by Tim Whelan, about his drive over the ‘undulating hills’ from his home in Adelaide to the Port Fairy Folk Festival. Felix Meagher taught it a few years ago at the Koroit Lake school. There is variation on the final bar in each line- I am not sure if I’ve got it down exactly right as I did not have a recording to work off
