Tune of the Day: The Gude Companie

Reel by Roddy Campbell

Today's tune was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The title is part of a Jacobite toast dating back to the 17th or 18th century:

Weel may we a' be,
Ill may we never see;
Here's to the King
And the gude companie.
Here's a health to them that's away,
Here's a health to them that's away,
Here's a health to them that were here shortsyne,
An, canna be here today.
