MOTHER GOOSE [1]. AKA and see "Grandmother's Pet," "Jig (53)," "Oscar Woods' Jig." English, American, Irish; Jig (6/8 time). C Major: G Major (Cahusac). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A jig of unknown provenance. The tune was printed, along with directions for a country dance, by Boston music publisher G. Graupner in his A Collection of Country Dances and Cotillions for the piano forte (c. 1808, No. 4). A version was entered as an untitled jig in Book 3 of the large c. 1883 music manuscript collection of County Leitrim piper and fiddler Stephen Grier (c. 1824-1894) (for which see "Jig (53)"). In the late 20th century collector Peter Kennedy printed the exact tune, transposed to 'D', as "Grandmother's Pet."
