DRAG HER AROUND THE ROAD  (Tarraing thar timpeall an Bhóthair í). AKA and see "Pullet and the Cock (The)," "Shores of Loch Graney," "Shores of Lough Graney." Irish, Reel. E Minor ('A' part) & G Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The alternate titles are from Stanford/Petrie's Complete Collection (1905). See Petrie's "Pullet and the Cock (The)" for an early version of the reel. The aggressive-sounding title "Drag Her Around the Road" would seem to be a reference to the former Irish rural custom of holding dances at crossroads. The group Cherish the Ladies recorded the tune as "The Pullet." According to Bill Black, a New York City name for the tune was "Bunratty Boys," named for a Bronx Irish bar that hosted sessions with Andy McGann and other famous Bronx players.
