Drumshanty There's a Herrin' in the pan (8) There's a Herrin' in the pan 16 Jan 03


Does anyone know anything about this song? I learned it from a Gordeanna McCullough/Clutha CD and I'd like to know where it's from and if it's traditional or not. I've trawled the internet but there doesn't seem to be much about it online.

If you don't know it the first verse goes:

"There's a herrin' in the pan for you old man
There's a herrin' in the pan for you old man
The heid's for you and the tail's for me
But the middle's for the lodgin' man"

Ta muchly
