Tune of the Day: The Original One-Horned Sheep

Traditional Irish jig

This variant of “The Old Horned Sheep” appears to be unique to Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. O'Neill remarks: “An Irish song extolling the many good qualities of An sean caora adarcach in supplying drink, food, and clothing, to her owner, was sung to this air.”
