Home with the Girls in the Morning

I've heard a few recordings of this tune, and some play it with the F# at the end of the 5th line, and others don't. Take your pick. To access music sheets and soundfiles, click this link.

I like the tune but it is a bit fast for me (165 bpm)  I doubt if I could ever get it to that speed.

Would it help to have a slowed-down version of the tune, Drifter?

Thanks for the offer Nigel but I think it would be better to struggle with if for a while.  When I try to play fast I don't articulate my notes properly.

Good tune.

I think it sounds nice to play an "A" note rather than the F#

Love this tune, thanks for posting, Nigel.
Wasn’t sure about the sudden change in atmosphere at the end of the fifth line but on second thoughts, the title, I love it! Fits in well.

Here’s a vid, Drifter, you can change the speed with one of the buttons top right, will give this a go this week sometime and post the result. 
Thanks again, great dance tune!

When I was a younger man,
Come and hear my story;
Sing and dance the whole night through,
Come home with the girls in the morning.

Come on Grandpa, sing your song,
Come and tell your story.
Tell us how you danced all night,
Came home with the girls in the morning.

Had a dream the other night, I
Thought I was in glory.
Sang and danced the whole night long,
Came home with the girls in the morning

Come on Grandpa, sing your song,
Come and tell your story.
Tell us how you danced all night,
Came home with the girls in the morning.

Hi Simon,
This tune was just too fast for me.  I think the Desert String Band are playing at over 200 BPM!  I enjoy playing these tunes even if I can't get up to speed.  This was my attempt from four months ago.

Sounds great Chris, I really like the sound and that tempo too. 
My metronome says you’re running at 150 bpm (maybe means 75) , not bad!  Smile
I play octave mandolin most of the time, one of the things that helped me with speed was ‘chunking’. You may already know about if you play guitar. Tremolo too, though not sure how that would work on harmonica!

Do you post Youtube vids? I’ll see if I can record a version at your speed.
