GAY YOUNG FIREMAN, THE. Irish, Air (4/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. O'Neill (1922) says: "Some fifty years ago I heard a ballad sung to this air by a young lady from Brooklyn, NY. It recited the fascinations of A Gay Young Fireman of that city. The strain, unmistakably of Irish origin, displays marked individuality."
