Well, it's not the original, but there is supposed to be sheet music in the DT mirror, here, but I only get the red x in the box. I could draw and print the abc and e mail it to you as an attachment, if you like.

Mary Brooksbank's "The Jute Mill Song", words and music, is on p. 84 of Nigel Gatherer's 'Songs and Ballads of Dundee", 1986, and recently reprinted. You might find it on Nigel Gatherer's website.

Sorry, Nigel Gatherer doesn't list his 'Songs and Ballads of Dundee', on his website, but you can pick up used copies at $10 to $18 through www.bookfinder.com

As "Oh Dear Me", it is in Norman Buchan & Peter Hall's The Scottish Folksinger (Collins, 1973, pp. 33-34; with music & chords), with this note: "By Mary Brooksbank, a former jute mill worker, from her collection of peoms entitled Sidlaw Breezes."

Recording of this song (mp3) is HERE (the first half is a narration) and HERE, the title being "Ten and Nine". The tune is slightly different from that of the Scottish Folksinger version.

Transcribed from a recording of the singing of the author, Mary Brooksbank. I've changed the quarter note 'd' at the end of the sixth measure of the chorus to an eighth note to correct a timing error in the transcription.

Thank you GUEST.

Mikey JOe - the midi is available through the DT or the abc GUEST has posted - either of which can be converted to sheet music.

Odd- I can get the article and photo through Google but get Error on the website. But you can find it if you search on the page that appears, entering "jute mill mither" in the box.
