Tune of the Day: My Boy Tammie

Traditional Scottish tune

“My Boy Tammy” is a 18th century poem and song that appears in numerous anthologies, such as David Herd's Ancient and Modern Scottish Songs (1776), where it appears as “The Lammie”. The lyric, credited to the prolific Scottish poet Hector MacNeill (1746–1818), is the precursor of the more familiar “Billy Boy” (“Where have you gone, Billy Boy, Billy Boy?”).
