I got this tune from my Grandfathers cousin Micheal "Jock" Cawley R.I.P. David Munnelly also learned this tune from Jock and recorded it on his cd "Swing".
If you have an alternate name please post it below.

Jock was a Box player.

Variation..

For the second part:

~ | =gfe dcB | ~ A-part, bar 4

I seem to want to take that g as natural…

Taking it through the keys ~ another way to seek a possible name ~

Nice tune. Where was Jock from? Mayo?

Jock Cawley.

Micheal Jock Cawley was born in the village of Faulmore ,Blacksod,Co.Mayo.From an Early age he went to Ceili’s and watched local accordion player’s play the Boy’s of Blue Hill,The Kerry Polka and so on.He went to Scotland in his teen’s to pick "Praties"s.When he was over there he bought an Old Hohner accordion.He progressed from there ,always staying loyal to the north Mayo style.From then on He played at Dances.This was one of the tunes he played.

Great addition dinn2, any other stories about the man will be welcomed. I used to dig praties too, and I hated it, especially during a frost, and finding those damned stinkers too, yuck! I’m sure your grandfather and his cousin were characters, may you follow in their steed, with more than just the music and dance…

Ok ones Jock went too a wedding in Crossmilina in Mayo.
On the Menu was Roast Beef,Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts.
That evening when Jock came home he told us all about the wedding.Somone asked him about the meal.
He said "It wass Nice But they Made SH*TE of the Cabbage!!🙂🙂
