WOER WITH THE POCK OF MEAL. Scottish, Reel (4/4 time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The title refers to a suitor (woer) with a pock (i.e. peck) of meal. Ground grain was at one time used as a type of currency in isolated regions, and a 'peck of meal' (along with the ability to replenish it) would have been an attractive commodity to a potential mate. All else considered, of course.
Compare with "Porto Bello (3)."
