Old King Coul (3) (per malcolm Douglas: An 18th century Scottish version of the well-known song. Midi made from notation in Songs of Scotland vol.2 (ed. Myles B. Foster, undated; presumably late C19), where the tune is simply described as "ancient". The DT file points out that lines 5 and 6 of the text are omitted in the Scots Musical Museum, where the tune (presumably the same as the one I quote) was given, so it should be noted that the lines And every fidler was a very good fidler, And a very good fidler was he. do not have music prescribed. I don't know what the best way around this is; Chappell (Popular Music of the Olden Time) has two English versions, but the one with the extra lines is very different to the SMM tune, which is a variant of the tune from John Gay's Achilles, which Chappell also quotes. Best for now, I think, to note that the text from Herd given in the DT has no tune, but that the tune I give is the one to which it was actually sung, minus those two lines. Doubtless people can improvise the rest if they wish) DT

Pennyworth of Pins (Example 1 of 3 cites Alfred Moffat's Fifty Traditional Scottish Nursery Rhymes (1933) for tune; midi made from notation in that book. In Moffat it is called I'll Gie You A Pennyworth O' Preens; the text differs just slightly from the DT file, and for the sake of understanding how the tune fits should be indicated here: I'll gie you a penny-worth o' preens, That's aye the way that love begins; If you'll walk wi' me, ladye, If you'll walk wi' me, ladye. N.B. The two other examples have different tunes, to be found in Opie, The Singing Game and Buchan, 101 Scottish Songs respectively; these still need to be found and added. ) DT
