Also known as Lovesick Polly.
There is 1 recording of this tune.
Love Sick Polly has been added to 17 tunebooks.
Another tune that I rather like from the Joshua Jackson manuscript of 1798 (JMS 57) but which has a much more modern feel to it. Possibly our Polly had lost her heart to some barbary pirate?.
This is also in Thompson’s Compleat Collection of Country Dances c.1770.
