forcing abcm2ps line breaks

I edited this using BarFly:

BarFly's staff notation is not pretty, but it puts the line breaks where I want them. Four staff lines. Which is what I'm seeing as this board displays it above.

When I export from BarFly to abcm2ps, I get a mess. The line break before the C part is ignored and the tune is allocated to 5 staff lines, with the start of the C part obscurely hidden in the middle of a line.

When exporting to abcm2ps, BarFly gives me a choice between "auto" linebreaks and "every n bars" - neither of which is what I want.

How do I persuade abcm2ps to do what I mean?
