Jock O’Hazeldean

I usually add a grace note between the C at the end of measure 4 and the E at the beginning of measure 5 (and the same between measures 12 and 13). I learned this tune a million years ago from Shelley Phillips in the teen celtic music band she runs.

Jock O’Hazeldean, X:2

A Scottish song, that I arranged based on multiple recordings.

Re: Jock O’Hazeldean

The song is by Sir Walter Scott. IIRC the air is one used in Scott’s time for a ballad called ‘Jock o Hazelgreen’.

Re: Jock O’Hazeldean

The C natural in the closing cadences of the A and B parts should be a B natural: "for (E) Jock (G) o (B!) Hazeldean (A, G, G)"
