Three comments

This is a waltz I wrote quite some years ago - so it’s not to be mistaken for the jig of the same name (I just found out that there is anotehr tune that’s called ‘The Wishing Well’).

It’s a rather frenchy-sounding piece that sounds great with accordion and fiddle.

Oops…looking at the sheet, I just discovered that I submitted a slightly dated variation of the tune and edited the ABC accordingly.
