Thread Name: Origin: Billy in the Lowland / ... Low Ground
Subject: RE: Billy in the Lowland
All I can say is that when it's played at a moderate speed, I hear a trotting horse!

(I've always heard it as 'Billy in the Low Ground) A song I know that's called 'Lowlands (is my home)' is very much like another tune called 'Sally Ann'.)
