Thread Name: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Subject: Sweet Afton - which tune?
I learned Flow Gently Sweet Afton from the DT. There are two tunes, one that sounds like "Away in a Manger" and another. I liked the unfamiliar tune better, so that's how I sing it now. However, I just read that the song is very well-known in Scotland. Can anyone tell me which tune it is commonly known by? If I sing it with the lesser-known tune, is anyone going to berate me?
