Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'juice of barley', song from about 1690
If I remember right, the Irish words go to a tune very much like "Rosin the Bow" (at least, the chorus is like it) -neither "Stingo" nor "The maltman comes on Monday". There are three different tunes involved here as well as several different sets of words.
Anybody got an ABC for the Irish song's tune?
