SLAP AND KISS. AKA and see "All Night I Lay with Jockey," "Lassie Gae Milk on My Cow Hill." English, Triple or “Old” Hornpipe (3/2 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABCDEFGHIJK. An “old” or “triple-“ hornpipe from Thomas Marsden’s A Collection of Original Lancashire Hornpipes, Old and New. Containing Divisions upon each...being the first of this kind (London, 1705). The book was sold out of music publisher Henry Playford’s shop at the Temple Change, priced at one shilling. Unfortunately, very little is known about Marsden. Researcher John Offord notes that the "Old Spand Hornpipe" is quoted in the eighth variation of Marsden's tune.
