Googlesays: Written by Marcel Messervier
This is a popular Quebecois tune played in many places.
Tune 106 in the book ‘Danse ce Soir’.
from that book " Ti-Me is the nickname of Messervier’s father in law Aime, a fiddler…"
whenever someone says that a tune is fun to play on fiddle, it’s great for whistle too x)
