There are seven single staves, which Skinner drew with stylus and ruler onto the stencil. The music is in B flat major, in 2/4 time. The melody has a repeated 4-bar section, and an eight-bar section with 1st and 2nd time bars, followed by a 16-bar variation not published in the Harp and Claymore. The printed version has a few minor changes to the melody in the first bar.
