*Notes: There seems to be considerable variety of tunes with this name. The MIDI and ABC above come closest to what we know; the sheet music, not so much. One comment posted on the YouTube video, “Love the mouth of the tobique. It has 3 parts though, and they’re playing only the last 2 and leaving out the best part.”
