CHAMI MA CHATTLE. AKA and see "Cold Frosty Morning (2)," "Ta me ma Chulla's na doushe me" (I am asleep, and don't waken me). Scottish. The melody appears in Stuart's Musick for the Tea Table Miscellany, c. 1725/6, though it appeared earlier in Neale's A Choice Collection of the Most Celebrated Irish Tunes, c 1724, under the "Ta Me..." title. Bruce Olson finds this the earliest published Gaelic tune title in Scotland. In later British ballad operas it can be found as "Cold, frosty morning."
