ELIZA. AKA - "When I landed in Glasgow." Irish, Air (3/4 time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. "Mr. MacKenzie says:--'This is an air that may be heard in Antrim, or on the opposite coast of Scotland. But it is only sung by Irish'.

Now to conclude and to finish my song
I mean to be married and that before long:
For I have a spirit above my degree,
I would scorn to love anyone who would not love me. ... (Joyce)
