The Peeler’s Away With Me Daughter

I was browsing through the Requests section and was surprised to find one I actually knew. However, I could not bring myself to use the "Me" in the title (like "meh" or something), so I had to change it to "my".

Joe - I haven’t come across this tune before, but commonsense tells me that the ‘D’ in bar 4 of the A-part should be a ‘d’, i.e. an octave higher. Please confirm this (and correct the abc), just to warn any complete newcomers to trad who might take it at face value.

D

Yes, that low D should be a high d, but it is, alas, too late to change now.

Bear that in mind though.

Ha this tune is in the very first jigs reels and hornpipes book i learned from…i like it!
