I am a songwriter, who used the first and second verse of Loch Lomond in conjunction with a song I wrote about walking around a lake outside of Nashville Tennessee. i would like to check the origins of the tune. Can anyone help?
The song is to be on my new cd " The Love I'm In" , to be out in January...great Nashville musicians. Best thing I've ever done. great way to start the new year , eh?
Thank you in advance for any help .

Two more threads, look especially at posts by Murray and Bruce. Much fakelore on this song (it dates to the mid-19th c, not back to the Jacobite Rebellion). Possibly by Lady Scott. The basics are given in Traditional Ballad Indexcsufresno (Type in "Loch Lomond"): Ballad Search

The references there to Loch Lomond are not among Andrew Kuntz's more glorious moments. I think that we have more accurate information here; though of course you do have to filter out all the romantic tosh that people generally insist on posting when this particular song is mentioned.

I did come across, and post to an 'origins' thread here, a broadside in the Bodley collection from about 1820, which DID have the 'You'll take the high road' verse, but didn't actually mention Loch Lomond.
Unfortunately I can't find it at the moment.

This seems to be the earliest version so far.

The one I found might have been a version of Flora's Lament for her Charlie, listed by Malcolm Douglas in his posting (see link above).
It does actually mention the banks of Benlomond.

Pavane, that's the one I remember seeing. I looked at it, and it's got to be Loch Lomond in an earlier form.

"Flora's lament for her Charlie" is also at Bodleian Library Broadside Ballads.

I've added more on "Loch Lomond's" history to the current "100 Pipers" thread.
