ITEM NOTE: The chorus of Betsy Whyte's version is derived from a Gaelic refrain learned by her from her mother. In 'Tocher' 23 (pp. 264-265) it is suggested that the refrain may be a conflation of the Gaelic phrases "Tha bainn'aig na caoirich uile (all the ewes have milk)" and "'S galain aig a' chaora chrom (and the crooked-horned ewe has a gallon)".
