Just in case you haven't seen them already, here is a link to references at The Fiddler's Companion, which also makes an interesting comparison with Flop Eared Mule:

**************

I've been searching the similarities of Flop eared mule & Bluebell Polka on another thread & just found Malcolm's link, above.

On JC's tune site, there's a number of different tunes called 'Bluebell', but the one almost identical to 'Donkey'is 'BluebellPolka'

Anyone know which came first & is one derived from the other?
