The melody was published in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1778 as "The Duke of Gordon's Rant," however, an older title is "Bod 'Na Sheasamh/Bohd na Hesudh," published more than twenty years earlier by Scottish cellist-composer James Oswald. Uilleann piper Seamus Ennis played a version of the tune, says Neil Mulligan, which he had from his father, who learned it from the famous piper and reed-maker, Pat Ward of the Black Bill, Drogheda.
