Subject: Cock Up Your Beaver - Burns
From: John in Brisbane
Date: 23 Aug 00 - 10:31 AM

Did Burns write this? My copy of 'The Songs of Scotlamd - Vol 2' Edited by Foster claims so, but the DT makes no mention of it. I was researching a missing tune for MMario when I came across it. The DT has a different name for the lyrics. Foster claims this to be penned by Burns to the Air 'Cock Up Your Beaver'. Regards, John

My copy of "The Works of Robert Burns" published by the Wordsworth Poetry Library contains Cock Up Your Beaver. The first line is "When first my brave Johnnie lad/Came to this town." According to Ian McIntyre in his carefully researched biography of Burns "Dirt & Diety" Cock Up your Beaver was included in the fourth volume of the Scots Musical Museum. I really recommend "Dirt & Diety" published by HarperCollins ISBN 0 00 215964 3 available in both hardback and paperback. Although acedemic it is a marvelous resource for those interested in Burns.

It's Scottish air that pre-dates Burns. Some variations on the melody are attributed to the Irish harper O'Carolan. Burns may have written words to the melody - another mudcatter might know if he did. It's one of my favorite titles - though I've yet to play it and announce the title! Can you imagine performing it and dedicating it to someone in the audience? Well, it really means "tip up your hat."

Is Rolf Haris still around? I remember an old Aussie TV show that aired on our PBS wherein they were taking potshots at Rolf. I had no idea who they were talking about but that skit has stuck in my mind for decades.

Was "Tie Me Kangaroo Down" one of his?

Despite Liz's lyric and 'Tie me Kangaroo Down', Rolf is a genuinely bloody nice bloke. I met him once, well, shouted "He's behind you" at the pantomime.

Rolf does a great line in animal TV shows on UK telly, and I think he deserves a knighthood for doing the definitive version of Stairway to Heaven, with his wobble board.

Seriously, I like old Rolf. He's a diamond geezer.

David Herd, Ancient and Modern Scottish Songs, Heroic Ballads, etc. In two volumes, 1776, Vol 2, page 205:

"Cock up your Beaver"

When first my dear Johny came to this town,
he had a blue bonnet, it wanted the crown;
but now he has gotten a hat and a feather,
Hey, my Johny lad, cock up your beaver.
Cock up your beaver, cock up your beaver,
Hey, my Johny lad, cock up your beaver;
cock up your beaver, and cock it nae wrong,
we'll a' to England ere it be lang.

I like this pre-Burns version. I think Burns's modification of this is good, too.

He had a blue bonnet
That wanted the crown;
But now he has gotten
A hat and a feather,---
Hey, brave Johnnie lad,
Cock up your beaver.

Cock up your beaver,
And cock it fu' sprush,
We'll over the border
And gie them a brush;
There's somebody there
We'll teach better behaviour---
Hey, brave Johnnie lad,
Cock up your beaver!

This linguistic designation/connotation goes back to the grand old song called "Who Killed Cock Robin". As I think I mentioned once before, Cock Robin's real name was Penis Rabinowitz-----but when he migrated to the U.S.A. there was a guy at Ellis Island who had a unique sense of humor.

Had a friend who lived on a mountainside--his trapper neighbour would sometimes leave a skinned beaver in the mailbox for him. A bowl of beaver stew is an experience worth having if you're a meat eater. It's on the gamy side--kind of rich. Like chocolate flavoured meat.

But do cook up your beaver well before you try it.

That's OK, don't bother to thank me for sharing that...

The rest of the tunes from Mitchell's 'Highland Fair' are also on Jack Campin's website. (You can click onto it from my homepage).

Burns song is in 'The Scots Musical Museum', #309, 1792. James Dick, 'The Songs of Robert Burns', p. 461, 1903, said:

A fragment of the old song is in Herd's Scots Songs, 1769, 314. Burns made a few alterations in the first stanza, the second being entirely his.

............. Wm. Stenhouse in 'Illustrations to SMM' pointed out the fragment given by Herd, and printed it, and said at that time (before 1821) he had a manuscipt copy of Burns' song in Burns' handwriting. Burns two verses fit the version of the tune in SMM once through (16 measures of 6/4 time).

The dance tune of the same name (Cock your Beaver) can be found in John Playford's publication "The English Dancing Master (1651). Of course we realize this simply means to tip one's hat in the direction of a possible patron, "a common gesture made by a busker or a beggar." William Lyons, 1996, The Dufay Collection.

Harpgirl. Quite inaccurate. See Jeremy Barlow's 'The Complete Country Dance Tunes from Playford's Dancing Master', 1985, for reprint of all the tunes, and their dates and edition #, that appeared in all editions of Vol. 1 of 'The Dancing Master', 1651 - c 1728 (but that's only for Vol. 1). My file CNTYDAN1 lists all the tunes in the last edition of vol. 2 and 3, but I don't know when these tunes first appeared, and some tunes originally in volume 1 were later moved to Vol. 2. I have two facsimile reprints (separate publications) of the 1651 edition, and there's no tune in that with 'beaver' in the title.

In Claude Simpson's "The British Broadside Ballad and Its Music" he attributes "Cock up thy Beaver" to Thomas D'Urfey, or at least he notes that the tune was first published in D'Urfey's "Choice New Songs" in 1684, as the tune for a song called "The Horse Race." The last line of the song's refrain was "Hey brave Johnnie lad, cock up your beaver." The tune also came to be known as "Johnny, cock thy beaver" and "To Horse brave Boys."
