Apologies in advance, but these notes are closer to the melody which the Tannahill Weavers use for this song. These notes need improvement, but are a fair starting point.
Anyone know if the little snatch of major key tune @1:12 has a name?
The notes seem to derive from the reel named The Drummer

This tune seems to be an obvious variant of the ‘Piper of Dundee’ which is in the database several times, either as a hornpipe or a strathspey.
