GLOBE TROTTER. American, Hornpipe. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "Can be used as a Clog" (Cole). Partridge's Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English (1970) gives the meaning of globe trotter as "a merely quantitative or spatial traveller...hence a long-distance or a frequent traveller" in colloquial usage in 1883 (the year Ryan's Mammoth was published).
