Very nicely played indeed!
It's been on my list of tunes to learn on melodeon forever, as I first played it on piano many years before I'd even heard of a melodeon.
I don't understand his remark about it being in D - the original was in E♭.
Incidentally, he does a key change between the two halves of the tune, that's not in the original.
My attempt to learn it was in E on a D/G instrument, which fits quite well.
I'm a melodeon player. What's your excuse?
