Great tune

This is a great tune that I wish was better known, hopefully it will be picked up by more people now. I have my own little variation in the second half which I played to Tony MacManus once, he seemed to like it. It’s just something I thought I heard in the autoharp harmonies of his recording but he hadn’t heard it himself! I don’t know how to read or write ABC so unfortunately I can’t put it in here 🙁 I do plan on recording the tune on my first album if I ever get around to making it though!
