AS I WAS WALKING ONE MORNING IN MAY. Irish, Air (3/4 time). C Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. It is interesting to compare the song set to this tune with the Appalachian derivative song "One Morning in May". Although they are quite different in both words and music, they are both in triple time and clearly related.
- See, for example, the performance video of "One Morning in May" by West Virginia fiddler Melvin Wine (1909-2003) and folklorist Gerry Miles at Berea College .
