Back to Quoth the Master to the Man[edit]


QUOTH THE MASTER TO THE MAN. Scottish, Air (whole time). D Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The melody appears in London publisher Henry Playford's 1700 collection of Scottish dance tunes. The air is one vehicle for a number of related non-sense songs (see Roud number 473) that go by titles such as "Martin said to his man," "Fooba-wooba," "Johnny Fool," "The Man in the Moon" and many others.
