This jig appears in more early books, under more different names than any other tune in the Ash manuscript. (in which it was untitled) It can be found in O'Neill's and other Irish collections as "Daniel of The Sun" or "Thady You Gander". In Ryan's Mammoth Collection and Coles it is "The Bottle of Brandy". In 19th century minstrel banjo books it goes as "Bully For You" or "Bully For All". It is often written out in the keys of D or G. I think it must have been a very well-known tune all over North America and the British Isles. Suggested chords by Ian Bell.
