Lighter Origins: Wearin' o' the Green (58* d) RE: Origins: Wearin' o' the Green 13 Feb 21


Loudon [Tenn.] Free Press (Apr. 15, 1853), p. 5:

Up stips Gineral Bonapart, and tuck me be the hand.
How duz ould Ireland, and how duz it stand?
'Tis a poor distressed country as ever yet was seen,
For they're hanging men and wimmin for the wearing of the green.

(Sung by an Irish chambermaid.)


New York Irish American (Apr. 25, 1863), p. 2:

"ARRIVAL OF GEN. SHIELDS IN SAN FRANCISCO, CAL. ...
The band then played 'Hail Columbia,' 'The Wearing of the Green,' 'The Last Rose of Summer,' and several other airs."
