OLD WOMAN'S PURSE OF MONEY [2], THE. AKA and see "Bill the Weaver's Jig (3)," "Humors of Glenflesk (The)," "Lonesome Jig (1) (The)," "Old Woman Lamenting Her Purse (The)." Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. In this case, the title "Old Woman's Purse of Money," would seem to be a confusion with other titles with the word "Purse" in them, for the tune printed by Kennedy is a version of the air "Stolen Purse (The)" AKA "Old Woman Lamenting Her Purse (The)." P.W. Joyce's "Humors of Glenflesk (The)" is a cognate tune. A strain of "Old Woman's Purse of Money (2)" is shared with "Lonesome Jig (1) (The)," which Sliabh Luachra button accordion player Johnny O'Leary recorded as "Bill the Weaver's Jig (3)."
