The Gleeman

Notes on Duſty Miller



Johnson gives no source for either air or text. However Kinsley and others attribute the song to Robert Burns (see Burns, 1969,BPS, p311).

I have ignored the bass part given for the air.

Regarding the text, as with the original, I have used the old-fashioned stye "ſ" for "s", where indicated. However, this means that the LilyPond file and the text file are utf-8 rather than ascii. (To be honest, one reason I transcribed this song was to attempt to use UTF-8 characters with LilyPond).
