Thread Name: Lyr Req: Tread on the Tail of Me Coat
Subject: The Quiet Man
In the film "The Quiet Man",there is a song called "I'll Tread On The Tail of Your Coat". It is sung by the menfolk when delivering Maureen O'Hara's dowry furniture.

Does anyone know of this song and,if so,whether it has ever been recorded elsewhere?

It is apparently a very old traditional Irish folk song but all my attempts to find it have failed.

I'd be grateful for ANY help!
