BOOT DANCE. Scottish, Country Dance Tune (4/4 time). A Minor ('A' part) & A Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A 'boot dance' is presumably a type of clog. The melody does not sound Scottish, may be an American import (Kerr printed pieces from the minstrel stage).

Printed source: Kerr (Merry Melodies), vol. 1; No. 26, p. 30.
