*Notes: The sheet music above shows guitar chords per David Kaynor (who knew Bob McQuillen), a very nice arrangement but subtly different from the ABC and YouTube above. Played on solo fiddle, this tune seems a bit repetitive, but add the chords and it becomes wonderful.
The story goes that Bob McQuillen wrote this tune for a rather clumsy dancer. We like to play it three or four times, starting slowly and increasing the tempo with each repetition.
