The Lark in the Morning is a popular Irish session tune. Of course, as such, you may find a couple of different versions out there. I’ve seen it played as a three part jig, and as a four part jig. I’ve also heard it in a couple of different keys, and I’ve found versions that are not at all alike.
The most common choice for Lark in the Morning is a four part jig in the Key of D, and that’s how I’ve tabbed it out below.
Each part is repeated before moving on to the next, and its usually performed as AA-BB-CC-DD.

An old Irish folk tune called The Lark in the Morning was made popular by The Dubliners in the 1970’s. It sounds nothing like this version.
I also found the tune in an Irish whistle book. I believe it’s in the Key of G. It also sounds nothing like this one, but I think I might tab it out for comparison. Happy New Year!
