NOTES 

This is a version of "Spanish Ladies", but with the parts reversed and a syncopation in the A part, 
probably due to an accordion taking the easy way out. The tune's phrases mostly end on a minor chord,
which is the result of only one note being changed, but radically alters the sound. This 
transforms a pleasant melody into a very strong fiddle tune. Greg O'Leary, 2007
