It was obtained from John McFadden a % clever traditional Irish fiddler of Chicago, who until then had forgot %ten % the tune since last leaving his native Mayo some forty years before. % Since its publication as stated, a spirited second finish has been % developed. As varied in the present setting "Tumble the Tinker", % heretofore so little known, is assuredly worthy of preservation, and % enhanced publicity. % Output from ABC2Win Version 2.1 k pre2 on 10/24/2000
