WEEL HODDLED, LUCKY. AKA - "Honest Lucky." Scottish. This tune is from the Blaikie manuscript, 1692. Walter Scott mentions this old anecdote: A minister sermonizing from his pulpit complained of the persistent skirling of the local piper. He said "I hear you have a tune among you called 'Weel Hoddled, Lucky'; if I hear ony mair o' this I'll hoddle the best o' ye." That's telling them! (Williamson).
