Transcript Wausau the 42nd - Scotland
Mountain Lake Music Brent Gault Indiana University Jacobs School of Music
This song originates from Scotland and the text attempts to recreate a bit of the Scottish “brogue.” I found a bit more information about the song at: http://whenwesing.blogspot.com/2008/06/warsawwausauwha-saw.html
In measures 7 and 15, there are variants that use the A and variants that use the D, so choose the one that you like best and enjoy. The closest version to this one that I found was in Liz Gilpatrick’s Rounds Found and Remembered. Click on the audio to hear the text spoken.
This song originates from Finland and can be found in several US sources with different texts. The text above is one I learned when I was younger.
