Subject: Tune Add: THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY
I've seen lots of threads on this song over the past seven years, but was never certain that we'd captured the correct tune for the song (as opposed to the dance tune).

Her's the version in Patrick Gaven's Irish Songs of Resistance.

X:1        
T:Wind That Shakes The Barley        
M:3/4        
L:1/8        
Q:1/4=160        
K:G
