Back to Cockstouns Hoggie
COCKSTOUNS HOGGIE. Scottish. A tune from the lost Straloch Lute Manuscript, unfortunately not one of the ones transcribed by Graham into his two partial transcripts of the MS. There is no known copy extent. A song called "Coxston's Hoggie" was, according to James Dick, the original for Robert Burns "What will I do gin my hoggie die?" though it is not known if there is a relationship with the Straloch tune.
