Composed, I believe, by Freeland Barbour.

Humbie is a wee totie place in East Lothian.

Helen Scott Of Humbie, X:2

The same tune but with the missing bit added in - it’s always handy to have a whole tune.

Re: Helen Scott Of Humbie

Helen Scott was Freeland’s grannie, so we were told in our mixed instrument class where we learned this tune some years ago.
