Tune of the Day: Did You See My Man Looking For Me?

Traditional Irish air

This Irish air was collected by Chicago police captain Francis O'Neill, who included it in his collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill remembers the following verse of this old folk song:

Did you see my man,
He was a fine man?
Did you see my man looking for me?
He wore a green jacket, a pair of white stockings,
A hump on his back and he's blind in one eye;
A corduroy breeches; his brogues full of stitches
Did you see my man looking for me?
