In Scotland too, there is a reel version of the tune. It’s called "The Old Reel,"or "Cairngorm Brooch," and recorded by the band Ossian.

I thought this tune had 10 bars in the B part? I remembered it that way in Gow’s

### Lyrics

Here are the lyrics from the site above:

verse:

Ilka ewe comes hame at even (x3)

Crookit hornie bides awa

chorus:

Ewie wi the crookit horn

May ye never see the morn

Ilka nicht you steal my corn

Ewie wi the crookit horn

Ilka ewie has a lambie (x3)

Crookit hornie she has twa

A the ewes gie milk eneuch (x3)

Crookit horn gies maist of a

Sounds great on viola too!

### Tunes for Hogmanay….

"Deaf Shepherd", playing the piper’s version of "The Ewie Wi’ The Crookit Horn", plus a few other tunes.

See y’all [ metaphorically speaking ] in 2014.

A’ the best, Kenny

### The Ewe Wi’ The Crookit Horn - the piper’s version

And here is the piper’s version. Far superior for mine. This is basically Ossian’s version, with a couple of touches from Deaf Shepherd’s rendition.

Sorry those above dots are wrong in a couple of minor respects, including missing the repeat of part 4.

### Re: The Ewe Wi’ The Crookit Horn

Fliúiteadóir , be sure to add yours as a setting above (look for the "add a setting" button).

Once you’ve added a setting, you’ll be able to go back and edit it again at any time.

### The Ewe Wi’ The Crookit Horn, X:4

The piper’s version. I prefer it to the shorter one.
