triple or duple meter

I was going to post part two of the YouTube lesson from yesterday, but I am away from home and have not been successful at uploading the video; so, listen to the following songs today and try to determine whether each is in triple or duple meter.  Tap the beat, divided beat and/or the rhythm.  Can you find the tonic pitch in each song?

Ash Grove
Shalom Chaverim
Irene, Goodnight
Make New Friends
Swing Low, Sweet Chariot
