Rainy Night on Curletts Road

I'm not sure if this really counts as a hornpipe, but I can't think how else to classify it.

The tune came into my head as I was motorcycling home one rainy night after work. Curletts Road is a short stretch of open road on my regular commute. On a busy rainy night it's an invigorating ride.

I hope I haven't copied someone else's tune - it's hard to know if you're thinking of a tune that you heard somewhere else.

Let me know what you think of the tune.

Nice tune.........HOWEVER some scary similarities to "The Walrus" and "Bob Strachan"........First part VERY similar to "Walrus"...2nd,3rd and 4th Part "Bob Strachan"....Sorry.....just my thoughts.
