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 1840 music manuscript collection of multi-instrumentalist John Rook, of Waverton, near Wigton, Cumbria. The melody has similarities to (but is different from) another, older, tune published by Oswald, "To Danton Me."
