From Dick Gaughan's website :

"The tune is "Whistle Ower The Lave O't". Written at the height of the Cold War as a message of friendship and solidarity from the Blacksmith's Trade Union in Leith in Scotland to the Blacksmith's Trade Union in Kiev in the Ukraine.
It creates the character of the Gillie Mor (The Big Lad) as a kind of Paul Bunyan-esque giant to symbolise the industrial working class".
