No relation to the usual tune known as "The Broom of Cowdenknowes" or "Broom, the Bonny, Bonny Broom," but is instead a song melody which appeared in 1780, set for guitar with words entitled "When Summer Comes the Swains on Tweed," as "sung at Sadlers Wells."

Source for notated version: a c. 1837-1840 MS by Shropshire musician John Moore [Ashman].
