Maid in the meadow
The jig version of "The Green Fields Of America" - or is it the other way round?
Maid in the meadow
I know ‘maid in the meadow’ reel, any relation to this jig?
Looks like G Major to me, not D Mix.

Morrison’s Jig (2) by Mary Custy and Eoin O’Neill
From "Mary Custy and Eoin O’Neill: The ways of the world" album (track 9) you can find 2 Morrison’s jigs, the 1st is the Em famous one, the 2nd is this one.

Watch John Carlos of Roscommon play this jig with other classic tunes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrW3Byog9LM
He is a fine flute player too.
Best of both worlds
The first part of the reel version, and the 2nd part of the jig version.
-But do they go well together?!
X: 5 “Tom Billy’s” (an alternate title I’ve avoided adding)
S: “Jimmy Doyle & Dan O’Leary: Traditional Music From The Kingdom Of Kerry”
https://thesession.org/recordings/1247 ~ track 13 (side 2, track 6), the 1st jig of two.
Q: 134 bpm (1 beat = three quavers/eighth notes)
I have also learned this one direct as well from other living sources and situations where the average tempos varied from 120 to 136 bpm (1 beat = three quavers/eighth notes)…
The Maid In The Meadow, X:6
Taken from ‘A Fine Selection of Over 200 Irish Traditional Tunes for Sessions’, compiled by David Speers with a Forward by Matt Cranitch. This version is probably closest to X:1 but I’ve added it for the few differences.
