Subject: RE: Tune Req: 'Where have you been all the night?'
That was quick! Thanks for this... though since all the references to it date it, as you say, back to the 1870's in America I'm still open to offers of a tune which was popular enough in 1850's London for a street musician to have learned it quite a lot earlier - she'd been playing since early 1800's.
And I've just spotted that she said it was "A Scotch Tune".
So thanks greatly for this help, and I'll keep looking too!
