MY LOVE IS BUT A LASSIE YET [3]. AKA and see "Five Leaf Clover (2)," "Hawthorn (1) (The)," "Haymaker Reel (2) (The)." Irish, Reel (whole time). A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. The tune is contained in vol. 2 (p. 150)[1] of the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman (musicologist). Goodman manuscripts researchers Hugh and Lisa Shields[2] find cognate tunes in "Five Leaf Clover (2)" and "Hetty's Wishes," and Goodman's own "My Love she wears a Dandy" (vol. 1, p. 249). They also note the similarity to the popular session reel "Hunter's Purse (The)."

Additional notes
Source for notated version : - James Goodman (1828-1896) entered the tune into his manuscript, having obtained it from the music manuscript collections of Seán Ó Dálaigh (John O'Daly, 1800-1878), the great nineteenth-century scribe; compiler and collector of manuscripts; editor; anthologist; publisher of Gaelic verse and stories and founder of societies for the publication of Gaelic literature, best-known today for his volume Poets and Poetry of Munster (1849). O’Daly was born in the Sliabh gCua area of west Waterford and was, like Goodman, a teacher of Irish.
