Thread Name: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Subject: RE: Sweet Afton - which tune?
I think I've read somewhere that RB also thought of "The Yellow-Haired Laddie" for these verses, but beyond a remark in one of his letters that this air was deserving of fine words, I've never found evidence of this choice in any letter &c. Anyone know more?
