SPATTER THE DEW [3]. Irish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). F Sharp Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCCDD. The tune is variously thought of in the key of F Sharp Dorian or the relative major key of A (or A mixolydian, although the identifying 'g' note is absent). The F sharp tonality is established in the beginning of the tune, but resolves to the major. A version of the slip jig appears in the mid-19th century music manuscript collection of uilleann piper and Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman. Fr. John Quinn identifies Henry Hudson's "Leather You Rogue (The)" as a cognate melody.
