The Gaelic Tobacco Tune has been added to 16 tunebooks.
With a name like that, it must have an awesome story behind it, but Google is of no help for me.
This must be a version of "Dear Tobacco" in the Charlton Memorial Book. The name might refer to the blockading and therefore shortage of tobacco imports from America during the War of Independence 1775-1782.
