The Cecil Sharpe version of this tune is derived from a tune called "Mill Oh (The)", popular in the 18th and early 19th centuries (it was first published by Thompson in Orpheus Caledonius (1725)), states Bayard (1981). Burns wrote a song to the tune called "Soldier's Return (The)," in 1793, and a 6/8 version appears as "Cuba March (The)." This version is from the area of Sherborne, Gloucestershire, England, where it is the vehicle for a handkerchief dance.
