Notes: I arranged a version of this in Gmaj a few years ago, but decided to have a go at arranging it in the original key of Dmaj after our fiddler fell in love with the tune and wanted us to play it ensemble. It is quite difficult to fit as the tune covers two octaves. I have tried to keep the simplicity and spirit of my original arrangement, which I feel was also in the spirit of Jay Ungar's original for fiddle.

I love this version! But unless I'm missing something, the 5th is capoed to A and the tune is in open D tuning. On all notes except the 5th string, you have to add 2 frets up to the positions shown on the tab. That makes it sound right. Is that correct?
