The Dingle Puck Goat

Album: Songs of Ireland (1870)

Songfacts®:

  • As might be deduced from its title, "The Dingle Puck Goat" is a novelty song, but unlike the later and better known Irish novelty song about a goat, this was written by a native born Irishman, Johnny Patterson, in 6/8 time. It was published by Waltons of Dublin, who published many of Patterson's songs. >>
