Given the appalling lack of ABC transcriptions of this quintessential Irish folk song, beloved equally by session singers and equestrian clergy everywhere, I present:

Clearly, you need to get out more. (Thanks Aonghas!)

How about the other (original) version of the tune:
K:C
z2E2 EE3 | E2EE EE2z | C8 | EEEE- E2EE | EE2E- EEEE | z2C8 ||

Now that's the real pure drop version. 8)

No no, the details matter:

K:D
"G"z2A2 AA3 | A2AA AA2z | "C"F8 | "G"AAAA- A2AA | AA2A- AAAA | z2"C"F6 ||

The tritone in the cadence - F# against the CMaj chord - is especially primitive and haunting.

I agree and bow to your exceptional and deep understanding of music of this quality. I could never hope to match your expert knowledge in such areas. :D

I know, I know. It's a gift ... and a curse.

My music teacher once told me that someday I'd actually be able to use the word "tritone". And I must admit, the thrill is a bit overwhelming.

Of course, my transcription reflects the original pure drop sitting room version in, er, D. The overproduced, commercialized stage performance is simply not worth bothering with.

I believe the tune to the song is also known by the name "The Steaming Pile".

This is one of the few transcriptions where I expect the composer might contact me to complain by asking that the C: credit be ... removed.

You mean Father Ted? I'm sure it's been outlawed somewhere. :D
