Tune of the Day: The Dark-eyed Gypsy

Traditional Irish air

This air appears in Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. The cited source is a P.J. Healey of San Francisco. O'Neill writes:

Although suggestive of an English origin, “The Dark-eyed Gypsy” was the name of a popular song in Tipperary, Mr. Healey's native county.
