The tune does appear in Robert Mathieson's own book,
"Marking Time" but he only lists himself as arranger. No
composer is listed. It's the only tune in the book listed that
way. Every other tune except one gives himself, someone
else or our old friend Trad as the composer. (The jig "The
Hag's Dance" gives no information at all.)
Further the witness knoweth not.
