Key written in: D Major
How many parts: 4
Type: Barbershop
Lyrics: In Athlone (Back to that tumbledown shack, in old Athlone)
Comments: Easy tag to teach. Lead has 2 notes and a hanger. Other parts very square (except for baritone, of course!)

From Bob Landrys Little Black Book of Tags. Notated in "number system" format, with X=Do and 2, 3, 4, etc denoting position in the major scale. An underline pushes the note up a 1/2, no flats. A dash indicates a held note. A slash indicates direction of the next note when further than 1/2 octave. No sight-reading necessary.
