'''SMIRKING NANCY.''' AKA and see "[[Poor Walley's Complaint]]." English, Air and Country Dance Tune (cut time). E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A popular song from the mid 18th century. It appeared in the '''London Magazine''' (1751, p. 228), and Allan Ramsays’s '''The Muses Delight''' (1754). It was also issued on broadsides with the title “Smirking Nan, or Poor Walley’s Complaint.” The name was earlier used for a racehorse, Marksman’s “Smirking Nan”, recorded as having been sent to Ireland in 1748. She was still racing in April of 1754, losing the Sportsman’s Purse at the Curragh to “Trunnion”. Dance versions appear in Johnson’s '''Choice Collection of 200 Favourite Country Dances, vol. 5''' (1750, p. 8), and Walsh’s '''Compleat Country Dancing Master, vol. 5''' (1754, p. 64).
