This tune is from an old collection which I am unable to identify (no title pages etc).

The Navvy On The Shore

Misnamed on the Bothy Band’s 1st album as The Navvy On The Line. The real Navvy On The Line is a completely different tune - a James Hill hornpipe also on the database @ https://thesession.org/tunes/4376
