According to the Fiddler's Companion, the two-part waltz Mockingbird Hill is actually the first two parts of a three-part Swedish waltz called Livet I Finnskogen (Life in the Finnish Woods) or Moeckelmyrvalsen. In Irish Gaelic, the two-part version is known as Seacht bPreab. Whatever it is called, this is a very pleasant waltz.
