"Dumbarton's Drum" you wish to find;
The famous song first comes to mind
That Jean Redpath was want to croon
But could it be another tune?
A forgotten air, like many more,
There's one solution: look up Gore!
If it's not in there I must insist
The tune you seek does not exist.
Aha! I see it - just before
"Dumfries House" - good old Gore!
A fine old reel (but that high "c"
Does not endear the tune to me).
So there you are, it might confuse;
The song or reel, you have to choose
If it's the former, let us know;
If it's the latter, see below.
