This reel owes its popularity to Irish flute player John McKenna (1880–1947), who emigrated to New York in 1911. “Lucky in Love” was apparently a local Leitrim tune that McKenna brought into the standard repertoire through his influential 1934 recording. The origins of the tune are probably Scottish, however, as it appears to be derived from “I'll Gang Nae Mair to Yon Town”.
Thanks to Heather for suggesting this tune!

Traditional folk song, arranged for two flutes
This old air, better known today as the tune of Thomas Moore's 19th-century song “Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms”, has been claimed alike by England, Scotland and Ireland, but according to Scottish musicologist George Farquhar Graham the probability seems to be that it is an old English dance tune. English composer Matthew Locke's 17th-century folk song “My Lodging is in the Cold, Cold Ground” was set to this tune some time after its original setting to a different, also traditional, air.
The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
