The version that I heard (Conor Moriarty) goes like this

K:Em
B3 BAB g2e f2e | d2B BAB e3 efe |
d2 B BAB g2e f2e |1 d2B c2 B A3 ABc :|2 d2B c2 B A3 A3 |
|: faf e2 d faf efe | d2B BAB e3 ede |
faf e2 d faf efe | d2B c2 B A3 A3 :|

both parts end on A, I prefer it this way.

Sorry, all the C’s in the ABC above should be C# not Cnat, so a loose Edorian key signature for that version
