Young Tim Murphy

One of those lovely rollicking dance jigs, I play Pat Ward’s Jig after this tune.

Aaarrggh. πŸ™‚ This is in O’Neill’s as Young Tim Murphy, but it seems to me to be nothing more than a version of the Frost is All Over (see:,
especially the versions in the comments section).

They all sound like variations of the same tune to me, or fraternal twins at most.

I don’t think we must be looking at the same tune then! Either that or what the punters say is true, and all the tunes *are* the same. Might as well pack up and go home πŸ™‚


How anyone can think this is the Frost is all Over I don’t know…
It’s definitely in O’Neill’s as Young Tim Murphy. Names are surely over-rated?

It’s all in the lyrics… 😎

Yep same song but different tunes
