There's a completely different song with a somewhat similar title:
Ye Boys o Callieburn.
Collected from a Mr Reid, a farmer from near Campbelltown on the Kintyre peninsula - Roud no 6932. Callieburn is a small farming community in that area. A song of emigration during the hard times of the 1830s-40s.
Sung by Shepheard, Spiers and Watson on their Album - They Smiled as We Cam In.
Sorry if it's thread drift, but it's such a fantastic song!
