LOW BACK(ED) CAR [2] (Ais an Druim-Iseal). AKA and see "Jolly Plowman (1)/Jolly Ploughman (1)," "Jack the Jolly Ploughboy." Irish, Air (6/8 time, "playfully"). F Major (O'Neill): G Major (Howe). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The song "Low Backed Car" is songwriter Samuel Lover's best-known piece, but based on an older melody (versions of which can be found in duple and triple time). In America, the melody was listed as having commonly been played for Orange County, New York, country dances in the 1930's (Lettie Osborn, New York Folklife Quarterly). The 'B' part differs from "Low Backed Car (1) (The)." See note for "Jack the Jolly Ploughboy" for more.
