Lightly Swims The Swan, X:2

I hear this with the downbeat on the dotted quarter as in X:2.

I’ve added some of the chords Phil is using but not all (there’s a sneaky diminished he adds one time) for ease of reading (to avoid 2nd time endings, etc). He often ends a part on the subdominant (or IV chord or G) and often slips an Em between the G and A chords in 1st and 5th bars of each part.

You are right, Donald.

Is this a Phil Cunningham tune?
