Great old tune

This great old tune is one of my all time favorite Marekin Tunes… seems to have the ethnomusicologist types stumped for an origin other than it shows up mainly in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia traditions and tis very old….

Irish relavance---?? My Love is In America on the A part slightly reminds me of it, but Im curious if there’s an Irish variant.

In the USA “OldTime” scene… it is often called a “crooked” tune… (extra beats)…. Id say that traditionally, it would be more accurately described as a straight tune sometimes played crookedly. I have posted a straight version, because I don’t seem to be one who plays “crooked” tunes… Although “crooked” is “cool” right now in “oldtime”, Ive found that its really the player’s preference traditionally…

Marekin? = American
