A Mile Down The Road - Battlefield Band

Transcribed from the CD "Happy Daze". From the comments:
"A mile down the road from where John (McCusker) was born (Bothwell, Lanarkshire), is the factory that makes Tunnocks Caramel Wafers and Teacakes - biscuits of mythical significance in Scottish gastronomy."
This is the first tune of a set of original tunes by John McCusker of the Battlefield Band.
