Subject: RE: Old Scottish Song Book - Help!!
Title is "Two Hundred and Twenty Popular Scottish Songs", published by Mozart Allan in Glasgow. M.A. never did put dates on his stuff,but it wouldn't have been long before 1893, I think. 20 years at the most. If you want to know what's missing, read on: p. 5 Auld Langsyne [one word!!]6 Comin' thro' the rye [and] O dinna ask me gin I lo'e ye.... 191 stanzas 3-4 of Mary of Castlecary [and] The Standard on the Braes o' Mar 192 The Lea Rig [and] Green Grow the Rashes 193 Lang, Lang Syne [by Lawrie] 194 Scotland [by Wm. Watson].
