Anything For John Joe?
A fairly common session tune. The first part sounds a bit like "The Little Bag Of Spuds" in G.
Here’s a link to "The Little Bag Of Spuds" posted by Josh Kane: https://thesession.org/tunes/391
I see that this has brought up Hammy Hamilton’s "Money Musk" in the recordings list, but the tune on that album is the afore-mentioned "Little Bag Of Spuds". I think there might be an error in the track listing - the 2 tunes are easily confused.
Hammy Hamilton already made some mistakes in the track listing. He plays "The Fair Haired Lass" as "The Dark Haired Lass," "Miss Thornton" as "The House on the Hill." I’m not surprised if he mixed up some more tunes.

Anything For John Joe
I play this Reel a bit different - I got it from the
playing of Colin Hamilton and Ben Gunn, many moon’s ago -
I changed your abc around a little to something how I
play it —

Anything for John Joe.
It’s Humpty Dumpty as a reel lads.
As usual, the odd title out here — The Crane Crook — is from Josephine Keegan.
