CRUEL DELANY. Irish, Air (3/4 time). E Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The lyric to the song is printed in Patrick Joseph McCall's Songs of Erin (1899, p. 94). It begins:

As I walked by the banks of the beautiful Slaney,
I chanced on my true love, and thus I did say;
"Ah, sorrow's the sight of you, cruel Delany,
To win my poor heart and then fling it away."

Source for notated version: Mr. J. McKenzie of Newtownards, "a great lover of Irish music," c. 1879 (Joyce).

Printed source: Joyce (Old Irish Folk Music and Songs), 1909; No. 324, p. 151.
