POLICEMAN, THE. English, Jig. England, Northumberland. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears twice on the same page (in the key of 'C' and then in 'D') in the mid-19th century music manuscript collection of William Hall Lister and Robert Lister (East Bolden, Northumberland). The jig was printed under the title "Norah" at the end of the 19th century in New York in a medley of Irish jigs by Frank Harding.
