The Rock And The Wee Pickle Tow

A slow air, as played by the Scottish band Heritage on their album "When the Dancin’ It’s a’ Done" on the whistle.

It can be played on a D whistle quite easily of course; but in view of their ornamentation I think they play it on an E whistle. However, here’s the transposed ABC for convenient standard fingering:
