ITEM NOTE: 33 lines sung plus single-line choruses. This song appears to be a ballad adapted as a waulking song, and its chorus line is possibly what Pistol is referring to in his words "Calen o custure me" in Shakespeare's "Henry V".

Recorded at Chapelhouse, Castlebay from the Vibrator Convertor at a ceilidh arranged by the Barra Folklore Committee.
