JOCK TAMSON'S. AKA and see "My Heather Hills," "Road to India (The)." Scottish (originally), American; Hornpipe. USA, New England. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The name, believes Don Meade, is from a character in Scottish dialect songs, ultimately derived from poet Robert Burns and his line--"We're all Jock Tamson's weans."
