Subject: RE: Name This Tune - Bachgen bach o dincar
It's a version of the tune used for 'Jenny is all the go'. There's a lovely version of it by Sam Larner.

The chorus of this Welsh version (there's a recorded version by a group, Yr Hwntws) finishes off with something half Welsh/half English, along the lines of -

'Y butcher ar y biper ar y Knickerbocker liner'.

Sam's Jenny 'can do a double shuffle on the Knickerbocker line'.

A version of the tune also was collected in the Isle of Man by Dr John Clague in about 1893-94.

Shoh slaynt,
