Source for notated version : - James Goudie (Shetland) [Anderson & Georgeson]. James Goudie was the grand-nephew of the legendary 19th century Shetland fiddler John Goudie of Levenwick, a man of prodigious size and much musical talent, but who was prone to fits of madness. Anderson & Georgeson  remark that James was "an inoffensive man who made his living by hawking. He was a good fiddler and often played tunes of Johnnie's composition which he called Wir ain springs." See note for "Jack Broke da Prison Door" for more on John Goudie.
