Jig from the Isle of Man. The title means ‘I Went Into the Widow’s House’ - you can imagine the nature of the original song. However, this was considered far too risqué by the Victorian collectors, so a sanitised version appeared in the Manx National Songbook (Gill, 1896) with the song now called ‘Cutting the Turf.’ It’s now generally known on the Island by this name.
