Back to Erin My Country (3) (Oh)
ERIN MY COUNTRY , OH. Irish, Air (6/8 time). G Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Joyce finds that the air seems to have been sung with the words of the old song:
Oh Erin, my country, although thy harp slumbers,
And dwells in oblivion in Tara's old hall...... (Joyce)
