Thread Name: Common Scots songs 60 years ago
Subject: RE: Common Scots songs 60 years ago
"The Old Rugged Cross" In the west of Scotland until 30yrs. ago no gathering was spared until someone had sung this one.
"Dark Lochnagar" a tremendous favourite with men who had over imbibed,interesting this one when one considers the composer. Women in general, in Scotland, 60 years ago did not visit pubs.
"The Bonnie Wells O Wearie"
"Bonnie Scotland I Adore Thee" This was recorded in the early 1930s.by a chap billed as Glasgows Tramway Tenor. Anyone, out there, with a copy of this 78rpm I would be pleased to hear from by PM.
"Willies Gane Tae Melvile Castle"
