Delaney’s Frolics

Marco, [K:]D should read K:D otherwise the ABC player will generate an error message (wrong number of notes in the bar) and will play the D.
Many thanks for transcribing this tune.

Thanks Trevor, I fixed the ABC.

I wonder if bars 10 and 14 would play better as "gefd cdeg". This seems more natural and melodic, and corresponds to the sequence "defa" in bars 11 and 15.

Listed as "A Ha’Porth of Tea" as tune #785 in O’Neill’s 1001 — the main melodic difference from the previous settings being the key signature and what note to land on at the end of the second bar.
