CUZ TEAHAN'S DELIGHT. AKA – "Terry 'Cuz' Teahan's Polka (2)." Irish, Polka. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The story goes that Teahan (originally from County Kerry) earned the moniker 'Cuz' when he worked for the Chicago fire department. When he would meet a likely Irish musician who was jobless, he would direct him to the firehouse with instructions to inform the powers that be he was Terry's cousin and was here for the job.
