SHE'S A DEAR MAID TO ME. AKA - "Is cailm muirneac domsa i." Irish, Slow Air (3/4 time). D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. See also P.W. Joyce's "<incipit title="load:maid" width=850 link="https://tunearch.org/wiki/She's the Dear Maid to Me">She's the Dear Maid to Me</incipit>," an almost identical title, but a different tune. Joyce included some remarks on the background of the air and gives one verse, which also would fit O'Neill's tune.
