Drink The Worts And Spill The Beer

Found in the Lowland and Border Piper’s Society Orange Session Tunes book. Can’t find anything more about it - anyone? It is in a cut on Hamish Moore’s Cauld Wind Pipes CD - unfortunately no longer available.

I found it years ago in one of the Gow collections. Tried to introduce it to a group I was playing with at the time - had limited success. I like the tune, though.

My memory isn’t right. I found it not in Gow, but in The Piper’s Assistant, 1877 edition.
