GUEST,Ian Blue of Paisley Scotland Sweet Afton - which tune? (58* d) RE: Sweet Afton - which tune? 06 Aug 11

Thank you Tootler for that link to the Sheet Music. I wish I had been more observant. I love that front cover isn't so romantic , old sheet music has such atmosphere!
Anyway I have been trying to get hold of this song and the version by A Hume and now I have it. It is out of print of course but I was able to locate a copy of Kenneth McKellar's Book of Scottish Songs and there it is, note for note and in the same key as the link which you provided.
Also well done Tattie Bogle for your link to Kenneth McKellar.
Maybe since I come from Paisley we Paisley folk grew up only knowing the tune which he sang.
