X: 1 T: Cow Behind the Fence (polka) M: 2/4 L: 1/8 C: (c) B. Black [http://www.capeirish.com/] N: "We were visiting the late Mick Cronin up beyond Gneevgullia one N: pitch-dark night some years back. I was parking the car near a N: fence when suddenly one his cows - which, unbeknownst to me, had N: presumably been sound asleep on the other side of the same fence - N: awakened and let forth a hair-raising MOOO. Naturally I yelped and N: dropped my banjo at the unexpected noise, and of course the racket N: only scared the poor beast even more. By the time we were leaving, N: no cow was in evidence - guess she had gone across the field to sleep N: in peace far from any crazy urban banjo players. This tune is dedicated N: to her."
