YELLOW JOHN [1] (Seán Buide/Buí). AKA and see "Pot Stick," “Lacrum Cosh,” “Ligrum Cush,” "Marquis of Granby (The)/Marquess of Granby,'" "Over the Water to Charlie,” "Sean Buide,” "Seán Buí," "Shambuy (The)/Shambuie (The),” "What Will You Do When the War Will Come?," “Wishaw’s Delight.” Irish, Single Jig, March (6/8 time) or Slide. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC. Sean buide (Seán Buí) was a term of contempt for the Irish followers of the English king William III, but later came to refer generically and collectively to Englishmen, a la "John Bull". The Irish name was corrupted into English as "(The) Shambuy," under which this tune sometimes appears. See notes for "annotation:Seán Buí," "annotation:Over the Water to Charlie" and “annotation:Kinloch of Kinloch (4)" for more. See also the related tune “Mickey Murphy’s Jig.”
