One That Was Lost (The)

The One That Was Lost is a jig I have known for a long time and is one of my favourite tunes. It is a composition of the great Paddy O’Brien from Tipperary and quite a common session tune. I associate “The One That Was Lost” with my friend Stéphane, as it is one of our regular jigs on our Sunday afternoon session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub. We usually play “Pull The Knife And Stick It In Again” after it and finish our set with “The Bush On The Hill”.
