The tune for "Gallowa Hills" that's in the Digital Tradition and in John's post above, is certainly not either version of "The White Cockade" that we have. Does anybody know the name of this tune? I like it a lot. Ray Fisher and Jean Redpath did wonderful recordings of "Gallowa Hills," using this tune (click).

Click here for the Robert Burns "White Cockade."
Click here for "White Cockade (They Advanced Me)."
