In Moffat it is called I'll Gie You A Pennyworth O' Preens; the text differs just slightly from the DT file, and for the sake of understanding how the tune fits should be indicated here: I'll gie you a penny-worth o' preens, That's aye the way that love begins; If you'll walk wi' me, ladye, If you'll walk wi' me, ladye. N.B. The two other examples have different tunes, to be found in Opie, The Singing Game and Buchan, 101 Scottish Songs respectively; these still need to be found and added. ) DT
