Comments
Burns produced two adaptations. The first was published in Volume III of "The Scots Musical Museum", edited by James Johnson, and contained two new stanzas and some minor alterations to the original lyric. The second, written in 1794, was a more comprehensive re-write. Recorded versions tend generally to be of one or the other adaptations but some have mixed the two.
