Is anyone familiar with a jig called "Too Much Gin?" A rather bad MIDI file of it shows up on a number of sites, especially some that specialize in Irish session music, but the MIDI file is obviously using GHB gracings. Most of them are rather brutally transposed down and at least on my PC the voice used doesn't handle that very well. An example of it is on the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games (http://www.grandfathergames.com/) web site (which is how I found it). It's a pretty easy 4-parted jig, somewhat catchy melody. I've tried to find a formal citation for it in various tune indexes without success. Does anyone know if it's published anywhere, either as a pipe tune or otherwise? Does anyone know the author, or is it a traditional tune?

Thanks,
