Weel Bobbet Blanch of Middlebie: Annotations

T:Weel bobbet Blanch of Middlebie
N:”According to the tradition of the country, this West Border air has its name
N:from the following anecdote. When Charles the Second was in Annandale,
N:he was at Middlebie and saw Blanch, a young lady of the family, dance a jig,
N:or Cumberland, to this tune.—The Lady danced so well that the King called 
N:out in raptures, “Well bobbit Blanch of Middlebie”,  which then became the 
N:name of the tune.”
