I am looking for the lead sheet to this song Paddy O'Rafferty, in G. I have heard it and have a copy that I found on the web a few years ago, but it doesn't read like the song sounds. Example, when I listen to one video, I hear a measure that has a rests. I am new to Irish jigs, I play jazz tenor, but I like the single note playing. Also, a novice in reading music so sometimes I have to stop and count the notes. Thanks

Have you tried There are a gazillion versions here, several in G.  You can download the sheet music and also a midi file to help identify the one you're looking for.

There are two jigs and a slip jig I know by the name Paddy O'Rafferty(Paidín Ó Raffeartaigh) If so it can be found here: (in D, three part)
or by typing into the search bar Paddy O'Rafferty PDF I came up with: (D)
and this one:
There's also the "other" Paddy O'Rafferty(in G) here: (in G,two part, very different to the D tune)
