Twas on the Twenty Second of March

EARLIEST DATE: 1906 (GreigDuncan4)
FOUND IN: Britain(Scotland(Aber))
REFERENCES (1 citation):
GreigDuncan4 804, "'Twas on the Twenty Second of March" (1 fragment, 1 tune)
NOTES: The current description is all of the GreigDuncan4 fragment.
I think the GreigDuncan4 fragments of "'Twas on the Twenty Second of March" and "'Twas in the Pleasant Month of May" are so brief and use such standard imagery that lumping them together is not justified. See also, for example, "Girls of the Shamrock Shore" and O'Conor's text of "The Shamrock Shore." - BS
