I was turned onto this tune by my fiddling friend John Maguire, who has been joining Ed Britt and I lately on our busking adventures. It is nicely crooked, with an extra two measures as it wanders off in a new direction at the end of the B part. I recently posted a YouTube video of this (mostly to show folks I was recovering nicely from stitches I had to have in my right hand), and John stripped the audio from it and added the fiddle. It sounded so good I thought I would share it. . I am picking my 1902 Fairbanks Whyte Laydie in G variant tuning (dDGAD).

The banjo works well here with the fiddle. They have an equal say, with the fiddle expressing all melody and the banjo adding rhythm, variety, and pleasant rolling to its melody. In other words, very nice!
