Thread Name: Origin: Red Is the Rose
Subject: RE: Red Is The Rose
Don't think Burns wrote in "Doric Scots"! "The Doric" comes from the North-East of Scotland and is different again from Lowland Scots. Burns was from Ayrshire, diametrically on the other side of Scotland from where Burns originated.
I only looked up this thread to get the words of "Red is the Rose" and it seems still no final answer on the first origin of the song.
