I haven’t heard this for years, but back then the seventh bar in each part was played ‘BgdB’, not as written above.

I thought this was a Johnny Handle tune but i can’t see it in the list of compositions on his website.
Anyone know the composer?

This tune is on the High Level Ranters’ 1971 album, High Level. On the Discogs page it is listed as traditional. They pair the tune with a border march called Stay A Wee Bit Bonnie Lad.
