GUEST,Granny In Wales Lyr Req: The Highland Cradle Song (25) RE: Lyr Req: The Highland Cradle Song 19 May 09

re the post of Murray, above. In the 80s I knew an old Scottish fiddler called Jim Gordon who lived in Oxford and who sang that parody, when he first heard me play the tune on my accordion, with your first line repeated 3 times, and a fourth line

"to buy a big pot of jam"

I have a very old bootlegged tape of the Machringbeg Highlanders playing a lovely version of the Highland Cradle Song, from where
I learned it.
