Frog In The Well 2/4 Lyrics and chords fit the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem on their album ‚The Bold Fenian Men’ (with two additional verses). Use a capo on the 2nd fret and you'll be playing in the key of A Major. The sheet music and tin whistle notes are included.

Here's the original as sang by Frank Quinn with Ed Geoghegan on the piano and Frank on violin. The recording was made in New York in 1924.
