ALEWOMAN, THE (Bean an Leanna). AKA - "Alehouse Woman." Irish, Air (3/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. See also versions as "Ale Woman (The)/Banalanna" (the latter is a phonetic version of the Irish bean a' leanna). Paul de Grae points out the tunes become almost exactly alike if transposed to the same key.
