HOB Y DERI DANNO [1] (Away my Herd to the Oaken Grove). Welsh, Air (2/4 time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. Editor Edward Jones remarks:

An invitation to the Oaken Grove was usual with lovers in former times: also, to drive Hogs to feed on acorns. This favourite air is sung very differently in South Wales to what it is in North Wales, & both so pretty that I am perplexed in the choice; therefore shall present my readers with both. The burden perhaps should be sung by another person.
