AKA and see "O my dear judy," "Grumbling Rustic (The)," "Domhnall na Greine" (Daniel of the Sun (1)), "From the Court to the Cottage," "Girls of the West," "I Gave to My Nelly," "'Tis Sweet to Think," "Buck(e)y Highlander," "Bonny Highlander (The)," "Leg of the Duck (1) (The)," "Thady You Gander/Teddy You Gander," "Sonny Dan," "Bottle of Brandy (The)," "O my dear father pity your daughter," "She is/She's the Girl that Can Do It," "Nelly's Jig," "Petticoat Loose (1)." Irish (originally), American; Jig. D Major (Cole): G Major (Bayard). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. This tune is called by Bayard (1981) "a familiar traditional Irish march piece," known from the latter 18th century and appearing in several 19th century collections. Irish titles include "Domhnall na Greine" (Daniel of the Sun), "Gille na' Drobhair" (a related tune), "Oh My Dear Judy," and "The Grumbling Rustic." In America the melody was known to have been played in the Civil War by the regimental band of the 63rd Regiment P.V. (apparently made up of musicians recruited in the early years of the conflict from southwestern Pennsylvania); the piece was published in an unknown publication at the end of the 1800's and was collected by Bayard's source from a MS. based on it.
