Money in Every Pocket (but mine own)
Also known as ‘Go to the Devil and Shake yourself’.
Tune No. 15 in Gary Hastings book ‘with Fife and Drum’.
Played It Today!
Good man! I was playing this tune an hour or two ago on a bamboo G flute. I am thinking about recording it for the 3rd Wooden Flute CD. This is more or less as I learned it from Rev. Gary himself over 20 years ago, but I never had a name for it.
You are very welcome - my good deed for the day!
Don’t suppose he was ‘The Rev’ way back then?
Gold In Every Pocket But Mine Own
This is just the best titled-tune ever, I wish I’d thought of it.
The tune is quite nice as well!
I know the feeling…
The Belfast March
Well, this isn’t really a real (uh … it’s a march …)
I couldn’t find any other references to this tune, so I figured I’d drop it here.
This comes from Track 5 of Harry Bradley’s "Bad Turns & Horseshoe Bends".
On that track, this tune is followed by one he calls "The Lilted March", which is clearly "The Rose Tree" in disguise. I’d love to hear if anyone knows anything about The Belfast, such as sources, or related tunes, or other recordings of it.
