FALLS OF CLYDE. Scottish, Hornpipe. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. The title probably refers to the actual Falls of Clyde on the River Clyde in Scotland, near Glasgow. The Falls of Clyde, was also a full-rigged, four-masted iron ship built in 1878 by Russel and Co., Port Glasgow, for the Falls Line, Glasgow. Her forecastle is 34 ft long and the poop 23 ft., and she is rigged royal, single topgallant and double top-sails. After a long and productive career The Falls of Clyde was purchased in 1968 and was preserved as a museum ship, presently docked at the Hawai'i Maritime Center, Honolulu.
