I noticed that you were looking for this tune the other day. Here it is.

It’s a great strathspey but I don’t know if it’s popular in the South side of Glasgow. 😉

Please note the key change for part 3.

This is getting spooky.I used to live in Cefn Coed,I played football in Trecynon and I lived beside Cathkin Braes for a couple of years when I was a child.

Thanks very much to the scotsman over the border. I’ve been after this tune for ages as a friend of mine said I should learn to play it . I asked him “ how does it go “ He said he couldn’t remember but it was a great tune ! he was right though it is a great tune.
