X: 62 T: 58. THE SNOUTS AND EARS OF AMERICA B: Sam Bayard, "Hill Country Tunes" 1944 #58 S: Played by Mrs Sarah Armstrong, (near) Derry, PA, Nov 5, 1943. N: The title of this fine, spirited tune may not be a corruption, but as it stands it is N: incomprehensible. The editor knows of no other version; but it is not impossible that N: the air is a derivative of the familiar "Irish Washerwoman" tune, recase in 4/4 time, N: and with the order of parts reversed. If so, it makes a distinct improvement on the N: original melody.
