FOXY MARY [2]. Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. A variant, albeit a distanced one, of the melody printed by Joyce. The earliest appearance of this version of the tune in print is in Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman's mid-19th century manuscripts. Goodman (1828-1896) was an uilleann piper, and an Irish speaker who collected locally in County Cork and elsewhere in Munster. He also obtained tunes from manuscripts and printed collections.

Compare also with "Oak Stick (3)" and "Toormore Jig."
