SINGLE AND FREE. Irish, Air (3/4 time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Collector P.W. Joyce printed the following words with the tune:

One evening last week I walked down by yon bush,
I heard two birds singing a blackbird and a thrush;
I asked them the reason they sany in such glee,
And the answer they gave, they were single and free.
