LOW BACKED CAR [1], THE. AKA and see "Jolly Plowman (1)." Irish, Air and Jig (6/8 time). G Major (Harding): F Major (Robbins). Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Very similar to the duple-time English tune "Nutting Girl (The)" or "Hunting We Will Go (A)" (not William Chappell's tune by that latter title). The title is sometimes confused with the unrelated "Irish Jaunting Car (The)." For more on this song melody and variants, see note for "annotation:Jack the Jolly Ploughboy."
