The Black Cock O’ Whickham

This appears on a High Level Ranters recording paired with "We’ll All Away To Sunniside" https://thesession.org/tunes/3101, with Sunniside as the 1st tune in the set. I also play these 2 tunes together, but I play them the other way round, with this tune first.

A friend who comes from the very same Whickam tells me that there is a song by this name, to more or less the same tune.
