HAUL AWAY THE HAWSER [2]. AKA and see "Comely Jane Downing," "Goroum (The)," "Larry Bourn," "Lord Summer's Reel," "Seymour's Fancy." English, Reel. England, Lake District. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. There is some slight resemblance between this version and Vickers' "Haul Away the Hawser (1)." Knowles identifies his tune as being from the Lake District, but it was printed in a country dance volume in London in 1793 as "Seymour's Fancy." See also the Irish version collected by George Petrie as "Goroum (The)" and O'Neill's "Comely Jane Downing," and English ship's fiddler William Litten's "Lord Summer's Reel."
