I love this tune - it’s the first one I learned to play when I got hold of "Morning Rory", and I drove my flatmates mad with it for weeks. Well, if I’m honest, months..

This is my first attempt at writing anything in ABC, so any comments welcome. I realised after starting that it isn’t quite as easy as it looks! I didn’t know what the convention was regarding 1st and 2nd time bars so I’ve improvised a bit. Similarly, I’ve written repeated quavers a few times where I could have used a dotted crotchet, but I think the repeated notes are integral to the tune and not just ornamentation.
