Hi Treefrogman. Just wondering: where’s the B-part?

This is a fun song with a catchy little melody, but does anyone ever play this as a session tune?

There’s another part to it?

Song

This is the tune to the song "The Rare Ould Mountain Dew", as recorded once upon a time by the Clancy Brothers. I agree with fidkid - not something that’s liable to come up in an instrumental session.

Treefrogman, sorry I’m thinking of a different tune called the Mountain Dew. Will post one day.
