Fair Maid with Her Milking Pail (The)
FAIR MAID WITH HER MILKING PAIL, THE. English, Air (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABA. Howe included the melody in his section of "Scotch Airs," although James Manson (1846) labels it an "Old English Air." Howe listed the provenance as 'Scotch' probably because he reproduced the tune note-for-note from Manson's earlier work, published in Glasgow.
