ROVER [2], THE. AKA and see “Belle of the Kitchen (1),” “New York Jig (3) (The)," “Paddy's Resource (1).” Irish, Jig (6/8 time). D Major (Carlin): G Major (O’Neill). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. O’Neill (1922) remarks: “The Rover is another tune that is suggestive of certain strains with which we are more or less familiar. It proves to be a variant of ‘Paddy's Resource (1)’ - a rather stylish composition printed in former O'Neill Collections.” “Kitty of Coleraine” is similar and perhaps cognate.
