I'm trying to find out
where this melody is from.
(Maybe a jig or a half-jig)
I wrote it down by memory.
Sounds like it could be very popular.

Put the abc-text below in the window of
http://www.concertina.net/tunes_convert.html
(Thx Jack Campin for this extremly useful link)

pls note: the midi output of
concertina.net
is much too slow


X:1
Q:80
T:unknown
C:Unidentified Trad.
N:inknown
Z: id:donno-1
M:6/8
L:1/8
K:G

It sounds like the song from 'The Quiet Man' when they are on a wagon delivering futniture to John Wayne's cottege.

Hi Dug,
thank you for listening
I figured out the song in the movie to be
"The Isle of Innisfree" aka "Dreams of Alwyn"
Although the chord-sreucture is quite the same
I miss the characteristic intervalls (5th down ... 6th down) aaaand
the song is in 4/4.

Hi Peter, thank you for listening
I've actually tried several search engines
(All I could find). At last I even tried the characteristic intervalls:
5th down 4th up 6th down and couldn't find anything
appropriate.

All the best, Doby
