Six comments

If there are suposed to be all those C-naturals, should we presume that the other ‘C’s’ are supposed to be sharps - which would mean a little change of key. Surely the B section bar-6 should be a C#?

No, that’s a log cabin… they used logs to build those.

Those c sharps/c naturals

you are absolutely right- I can only blame the lateness of the hour, the fact that I was transcribing by ear, and Doc the cat was being very insistant that the typing fingers should be scratching his ears, so he kept grapping them…..but in real life I play it it pretty muc has you have written it out- thanks for correcting it! (Doc would thank you too, but he’s busy chasing my other hand…
