Back to Girl that Lost her...(The)
GIRL THAT LOST HER ___, THE. Irish, Reel (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in the mid-19th century music manuscript collection (vol. 3, p. 123) of County Cork uilleann piper, collector and Church of Ireland cleric, the Rev. James Goodman . Goodman's title was "The Girl that Lost her ___", with the last word omitted, but probably 'maidenhead' or a similar term. Fr. John Quinn finds a cognate melody in Frank Roche's "Jolly Tinker (1)."
