Loch Lomond

First line:
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
composer
attributed to Lady John Douglas Scott
author of text

 
A traditional air. Although this song is attributed to Lady John Douglas Scott, legend has it that it was composed by one of Prince Charlie’s captured followers on the eve of his execution. The ‘low road’ is the way his soul will return to his homeland after death—quicker than his friend travelling by the more usual ‘high road’.
