BOANIE TAMMIE SCOLLAY. AKA and see "Foula Reel (Da)," "Shaalds o' Foula (2) (Da)." Shetland, Air and Reel. "Boanie Tammie Scollay" is a song sung to essentially the same tune as "Da Foula Reel" and is sometimes played as a reel by that name (Cooke, 1986). Cooke prints the following text to this dance tune, in oral tradition in the Shetlands in the 1970's:

Where has due been aa the day, boanie Tammie, pretty Tammie,
Where has due been aa the day, boanie Tammie Scollay?
I'm been a coortin, bonnie maiden, minnie maiden
I'm been a coortin, bonnie minnie maiden
What's due gaan to gie taw us, bonnie maiden etc.

Bread and cheese upon a plate...etc.
