We can get much info (with ABC notation and lyrics) on "The Rowan Tree" from The Fiddler's Companion.

I'm sure that Phil Coulter would be the first to own up to not having written this one..

words by Robert Burns tune by Traditional

Cheers

I know that you are at least half right Mr S. Doug! While I can just hear Phil Coulter doing a master's job in the playing of it, it is, I think a traditional Border counties tune [played a lot on the Northumbrian pipes]. I doubt, however, that the lyrics were by Burns. Not that I have any idea exactly of the origin, but I've never seen them included in any collection of Burns' work."The Rowan Tree"[ "mountain ash"--but who the hell would sing about that?!?] was, and is, a popular song throughout Borders society in Scotland.

Boab I stand corrected - you are of course correct - I posted without thinking..

It was Lady Nairn(e)- Carolina Oliphant, 1766-1845 - apparently who wrote the words - and it's a lot more like her sort of stuff.

Cheers

Steven
