Repeats?

Great tune and easy to play. Are you sure there are no repeats? I think it sounds more balanced with both the A and the B-part repeated.

Repeats

They are repeated aren’t they??

Another name and key

I learned this tune at Lark Camp 2011 as "Up in the Rafters" and it was in A minor. It was mentioned that it was by Aran Olwell and that it was on a CD by the name of Roaring Mary.
