Old Wife Of The Milldust

This is roughly how I have the tune. I was surprised I couldnt find it here , perhaps its under a different name?
Here is a pipers setting, quite different but interesting for the variations;

X:1
T:The Old Wife Of The Mill Dust
C:Trad.
R:Jig
M:6/8
Q:1/8=132
K:A mix
L:1/32
