VALSE DE L'AMITIÉ, LA (Friendship Waltz). French-Canadian, Waltz. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB. This tune was composed by Andy DeJarlis who recorded it on his "Original Old Time Music" (London EB 45) under the name "Interlake Waltz". He did record an album entitled "Tour de Danse...Tour de Valse" (London ‎MB 64) that contained an original tune called "La Valse De L'Amitié" but it is not clear if this is the same tune.

Source for notated version: transplanted French-Canadian fiddler Omer Marcoux {1898-1982} (Concord, N.H.) who learned the melody from a record he obtained in Montreal called "Tour de Danse...Tour de Valse" [Miskoe & Paul].
