The tune of 'Shepherd's Hey' (which is akin to the North England air 'Keel Row') is very widely found through England. The word Hey denotes a particular figure in "Morris dancing". Morris Dances are danced by teams of 'Morris Men' decked out with bells and quaint ornaments to the music of the fiddle or 'the pipe and tabor' (a sort of drum and fife) in several agricultural districts in England.
