OH LOVE IT IS A KILLING THING. AKA and see "Gates of Dreamland (The)." Irish, Air (4/4 time). E Minor (Joyce): A Minor (Stanford/Petrie). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "I give the words of this song from memory as I learned them in boyhood. Words and air are now published for the first time (except that the air is printed in Stanford-Petrie with my name: for I gave it to Dr. Petrie half a century ago). The air was universal in Munster in my early life. Versions of it may be found elsewhere: compare with 'My Love Nell,' and with 'We are poor frozen out gardeners' in Chappell's Popular Music of the Olden Time. To this same air--after a common Munster custom--the Limerick people often sang Burn's 'Oh, My Luve's Like a Red Red Rose'" (Joyce).
