Thread Name: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Subject: RE: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Also in the Bodleian, with the tune "Flow Gently..." is "Be Kind To Grandfather," by William Miller (overpriced at one penny).

Be kind to Grandfather, a proud man was he
When rosy in childhood ye sat on his knee;
Thy name is his name, when his head is laid low
May his virtues be link'd wi' the name o' his oe.
Firth b.27(388), 1864. Printed by The Poet's Box, Glasgow.
