What about "Callieburn"? As sung by Willie Scott and learned from the singing of Willie(?) Mitchell. Author of "Road to Drumlennan" as mentioned earlier.
The words go
"John Blair and I hae taen a notion,
Tae cross yon wide Atlantic ocean"
With a chorus of
"Hame fareweel, freens fare ye weel
And ye boys o' Callieburn,
Fare ye weel"
