Drag Her Round The Road

I learned “Drag Her Round The Road” from Hugh Healy & Blackie O’Connell’s duet album “We Were Drinking And Kissing The Ladies”. It is a great reel which I have enjoyed playing for many years now and never get tired of it!

It is also known as “drag her (a)round the corner” or “drag her (a)round the house”.
