Thread Name: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Subject: RE: Sweet Afton - which tune?
I don't know about the 'popular' version (Alexander Hume's) being 'popular' but the melody in Johnson's Scots Musical Museum #386 quoted above is the most popular version I know. I remember my mother singing this version over 65 years ago.
