GIRL THAT LOST HER ___, THE. AKA and see "Jolly Tinker (1)." 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. biography:James Goodman [1]. Goodman's title was "The Girl that Lost her ___", with the last word omitted (either by Goodman or his informant). Certainly the word "maidenhead" comes to mind, as in folksongs, but there could be other possibilities. Fr. John Quinn finds a cognate melody in Frank Roche's "Jolly Tinker (1)" and in an untitled reel in Breathnach & Small's Ceol Rince na hÉireann vol. 5 (1999, No. 127, p. 65) from County Kerry fiddler Julia Clifford, recorded in O'Donoghue's pub in Dublin - "a well-known house for traditional music for many a day" - on 11 June 1968.
