  Lay Dee At Dee

Taken from the playing of Tom Anderson and Aly Bain, in a set comprising Da Ferry Reel, Lay Dee At Dee, and Miss Spence's Reel. According to Tom Anderson, seamen would come ashore and sleep in a stone hhouse called a lodge where there would only be one bed for everyone to share. If someone took up too much room, he'd be told "Lay dee at dee, boy!" roughly translated as "keep to yourself."
Also available as a [MIDI file] and an [ABC file].

Set:   Da Ferry Reel/Lay Dee At Dee/Miss Spence's Reel.
