X:1 T:The Foggy Dew [3] R:song H: I learned this air when I was a child. Compare it with "Air thaobh na H:carraige b\'aine": Petrie, Ancient Music of Ireland, p. 143. H:Bunting, in his 1840 volume, gives a different air with the same name. B:Joyce, P. W.; "Old Irish Folk Music and Songs" M:C L:1/8 W:When I was a bachelor airy and young, W: I followed the bachelor's trade, W:And all the harm that ever I done W: Was courting a pretty maid. W:I courted her for the long summer season, W: And part of the winter too, W:Till at length we were married--myself and my darling, W: All over the foggy dew.
