ANDREW AND HIS CUTTY GUN [2]. English, Air (2/4 time). E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. This, a version of "Andrew and His Cuttie Gun (1)," was printed by James Oswald in the mid-18th century, and found its way into the music manuscript collections of multi-instrumentalist John Rook (1840, Waverton, near Wigton, Cumbria) and John Roose (c. 1850, Manchester, England). The melody has similarities to (but is different from) another, older, tune published by Oswald, "To Danton Me."
