The Miller of Dee
This interesting song has two printed versions. One is in David Herd’s Ancient and Modern Scottish Songs and the other is in Convivial Songster. The text presented here was found written on a fly-leaf of Dryden’s Miscellany (1716), the finder supposing it to be the original song. The tune is probably late seventeenth century.

from notes by Douglas Wootton 1981
