Also sung by Carrie Grover in Maine. Caroline (my wife) sings one that was collected in Tennessee, but from a woman who was obviously Scottish. Beautiful version with a lovely tune! I'm willing to give Francis McPeake credit for the particular version most people know, but I'll still give credit for the original text to Robert Tannahill, as Bruce has noted here.
