JACKSON'S JIG [5]. AKA and see "Drown Drowth," "Give Us a Drink of Water (1)," "There is no Milk in the House." Irish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Breathnach seriously doubts whether this tune was an actual composition of the famous 18th century uilleann piper Walker "Piper" Jackson, whose name is associated with many tunes, correctly or not. The variant "Drown Drowth" is described as 'Scottish' in Wilson's Companion to the Ball Room (London, 1816). The second strain, set as a reel, can also be found in "Dunmore Fancy (The)" and "Sunny Banks (1)."
