Gie Us A Drink Of Water

This is the opening tune of Deaf Shepherd’s album ‘Ae Spark O Nature’s Fire’ (1996). It’s a different tune to the one linked to the album in the recording section, and I couldn’t find it elsewhere on thesession.org.

Gie Us A Drink Of Water

The link in the recording section now goes to this tune - yay!

I would say it is a variant of The Swaggering Jig - the tune The Bothy Band called “Give us a Drink of Water.

But IMO best left here, as it would get obscured by the new system if submitted on that page.

Gie Us A Drink Of Water

Dash it all!

One of the ‘Bothy Band compressed-for-GHB’ genre of tunes?
