pastorpest Origin: Cock Up Your Beaver (Robert Burns?) (58* d) RE: Cock Up Your Beaver - Burns 23 Aug 00

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.
