LAZY TROULLOUPE, THE. American, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was entered into the 1859 music manuscript collection of amateur musician M.E. Eames, who may have lived in Philadelphia (judging from some tune names in the collection). There several tunes that were entered into Eames' collection contiguously that appear in a similar order in Elias Howe's Musician's Omnibus Nos. 6 & 7 (Boston, 1880-1882) (see also "Gentleman Blacksmith (The)," "French Fancy Dance", "Billy's Fancy"), indicating that Eames and Howe had them from the same page in an earlier, as yet unknown, source.
