Drumshanty Lyr Req: Last o' the Tinkler (Violet Jacob) (19) RE: Lyr Req: Scottish song missing lyrics. 20 Feb 03

It looks like the Dying Tinker/The Last Tinker. I can't remember properly but I think it is a poem by either Violet Jacob or Marion Angus set to an old pipe tune. I heard it sung by someone at a festival last year but that's the only time and I have been trying to find it ever since. If I can, I'll get in touch with the person who sang it and get some more info, if I'm not beaten to it.

Hope that is some help.
