Abstract

A collection of songs, from love stories to drinking songs. The first tells the tale of the Lord of Lochinvar who, after his courtship is rejected by his love’s father, steals the bride right from her wedding. In the second song, a young man meets a young woman in a grove one night and convinces her to leave with him, even though she had pledged to wait for her love to return from sea. He does this by reminding her of the fleeting nature of her own beauty, telling her that her youthful looks won’t last forever. The next song is a drinking song, lauding the virtues of Scottish whisky over other various inferior drinks. The fourth song describes the beauty of a particular girl, and the fifth is sung from the perspective of a man waiting outside in the cold and dark to be let in by his lover. The last song is the lament of a man who has lost his love, for whom he had given up his life as a shepherd.
