My daughter is looking for the tune.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You can purchase and download a legal copy of the lead sheet or vocal and piano chart through musicnotes.com. Transpose it up to D and then up an octave.

St Laurence O Toole played it in 2010

You might be able to transcribe it with Low A as the tonic like they played it, or with D as the tune's tonic like that video posted earlier with the sheet music from a piano.

After i suggested it, I purchased and downloaded a legal copy from an online source, musicnotes.com and wrote my own setting. Starting on D is no problem. there are a couple of other legal ( as in not violating copyright) online sources, but musicnotes.com supports transposition. The original key is C, so I transposed up to D, but then I had to transpose up an octave to put it into GHB range.
