So I tried interlibrary loan to see if I could track down intact copies of these elusive titles. Found the following, both in California, and both 'unavailable' through LINK+ . . .

Wearing of the Green Songbook (Boston: P. Donahoe, 1873).
(CSU Sonoma Library)

Irish Singer's Own Book (Boston: Thomas P. Noonan, 1880).
(San Francisco Public Library)

Now, I don't know if these books are on the shelves but non-circulating, or if they have gone missing. Anyone in the neighborhood of either?

Note the different publisher and publication date for the WGS; another printing, or a different item altogether?
