Turkey In The Straw
You may remember this as a summer camp song “Do Your Ears Hang Low?”
Though it’s usually considered an American tune, the melody may be of European origin. O’Neill’s Music of Ireland has a version with a Celtic feel. I did follow up lessons on adding American style variation and Irish style variation.
