From the "brown" LP

I had already started transcribing this when I remembered it was Paddy Keenan’s Jig. I will ask him if it’s OK to leave this up. It’s a simple transcription and a bit of a mess because the keyboard on my laptop is wrecked! The Enter key doesn’t work.

Here what I hear.

Assuming it’s okay… here’s what I gathered for the most part, many variations possible aside.
