DRUNK AT NIGHT AND DRY I' THE MORNING [1]. AKA and see "Lude's Lament." Scottish, Irish, English; Slow Air. England; North West, Northumberland. A Major (Gow): G Major (Kershaw). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCDC. The title appears in Henry Robson's list of popular Northumbrian song and dance tunes, which he published c. 1800. It is a British Isles version (printed variously in 3/4 or 6/8 time, and with parts often juxtaposed) of what eventually became the American old-time tune "Drunken Hiccups (1)." The melody appears in the music manuscript copybook of fiddler John Fife (who appears to have made his entries in Perthshire and at sea), begun in 1780 and continued for some 25 years. It also appears in the c. 1800 music commonplace book of musician Penuel Clarke, of Windsor, Conn., under the title "Old Condly's Tune, or Drunk Every Night & Dry the Next Morning."
