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 "Seán Buí," "Over the Water to Charlie" and “Kinloch of Kinloch (4)" for more. See also the related tune “Mickey Murphy’s Jig.”
