Abstract

The first of the two songs is a Jacobite ballad on the battle of Sheriff-Muir, with a detailed description of the parts played by many individuals, including Rob Roy. The second song is of the singer’s longing for her sailor lover to return to her. They had married in secret when her parents had urged her to marry for wealth, not love, and now she waits for him to return from sea
