Not the tune I know for Dainty Davie, at all: the one I know is virtually the same as Rantin' Rovin' Robin. I usually do a very simple 3-chord version, using D,G, and A or A7, with an Eminor (sorry 4 chords!) in the chorus, thus:

D...................G

D...................A

D...................G

D.........A........ D

Chorus:

G......Em..........D

G......Em..........A

D..................G

D..........A........D

I'll leave you to work out the note lengths and changes! Tattie B

Hae a care, Tattie----Burns himself chose the tune "Dainty Davie" for his autobiographic "Rantin' Rovin' Robin"---but I trust you are not confusing the tonsil-fanklin' ditty that is usually inflicted on "Robin" by Ken McKellar and co. with the melody for "Dainty Davie"? Nae offence, mind--it's just that confusion could arise here. I have seen brochures for "Burns Suppers" programming "Robin of Kyle, to the tune Dainty Davie", and heard the subsequent performance using the same old warble---no more Dainty Davie than Jingle Bells.

IT WORKS, & very nicely too, thank you Tattie B. I suppose we could actually be singing different tunes - but if the capo fits. . Slight thread drift ( but seeing as I started this thread) I was surprised how little Burns material I found on the net, considering how many Burns devotees there are. . Thanks everyone. H . PS is tonsil-fanklin in public an arrestable offence - I have my career to think of.

Sorry, Boab, nae offence meant. Although brought up on a very heavy diet of Ken McK and Moira A I don't know the version of which you Fankle. I ken "Rantin' Rovin' Robin" ( not to be confused wi' "Rattlin' Roarin' Willie" of course) from Sheena Wellington's excellent rendition mainly, and "Dainty Davie" from a tape someone gave me (?sung by an Irishman): apart from the end of the first line, the tunes are the same. Hilary, it's nearly Christmas, but from early Jan to mid March the Burns Suppers will be under way, so there will be a surfeit of Burns about, never fear! (Burns Nicht being 25.01.) Tattie B

Hilary, unless you happen to be singin' "the Carles o' Dysart", aye, it should be an arrestable offence![ :-)!!]

Can anyone suggest a recording of Dainty Davie?

Hi Sinsull, I have 3 versions. My favourites are The Fureys, but their own set of words - 'There was a maid in yonder town etc', and Janet Russell & Christine Kydd. There's also the Dubliners, & I'm sure hundreds more.

Hi Boab, Janet Russell & Christine have 'Up wi' the Carls o' Dysart' on the same recording as 'Davie', but I haven't had chance to learn it yet. I've never heard anybody else sing/play it.

Bye, H

Geez Sins......Just can't resist refreshing this can you? Why not refresh the other curly pow one too and then send someone to shoot me and put me out of my misery?

Spaw--staggering away singing tunelessly, "Daintey, Davey, what's a curly pow?....Dainty, Davey, what's a curly pow?"
