H:This is the story as I know it: late in the afternoon or early evening
H:at Binalong, Harry Cotter heard the tune from across the creek as he
H:rode his way home. The music was being played by Ivy's daughters. And
H:Harry ended up marrying one of the girls - Vera. I remember Harry
H:playing it so well - just a great tune. I stayed with Harry & Vera in
H:the early 1980s with a friend Pete Duggan at Binalong. We had been
H:traveling all day and were tired but we recorded Harry & Vera (on
H:fiddle) but eventually we had to go to bed. They played for ages, long
H:after I went to sleep and were just enjoying the music and each
H:other's company. There are many interesting variants of the tune around
H:the country as you are aware. Anyway got to go, -- Dave de Hugard
N:This tune is related to "The Glasgow Highlanders"
O:Australia, NSW, Binalong
