GUEST,David Ingerson Lyr/Tune Add: Christmas Eve (Alfie Duggan) (14) RE: Lyr/Tune Add: Christmas Eve (Alfie Duggan) 26 Dec 21

The tune, which is perfectly tailored to the song, can be heard here:
    It's not the Midi that Joe posted on 17 Dec., '05.
    It's the same tune as "The Maid of Cabra West" which is the Irish version of "She Loved a Portuguese." The latter, which is on digitrad with the words "maid of Camden (or Campden)," and which is from London, has a different tune, so don't go by the tune here on Mudcat.
    There are numerous renditions of "The Maid of Cabra West" with the Irish tune on YouTube.
