USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard (1981) thinks the tune is descended from an air that has seen service as a reel, polka, strathspey, and song air, in versions from several genres with several titles (listed as alternates above). The title "Rocky Road to Dublin" is a 'floater', and became attached to several different tunes.
