Maddie goes west

Hi Gordon, firstly, superb DVD from Sound Techniques. I got the martin simpson one as well - another major influence on my playing. On the DVD the last track is maddie goes west. Is the tab available to purchase for this? First saw you at plymouth polytechnic rag week in 1979, where my wife and I met!
