GUEST,Murray on Saltspring Origin: Out Over the Forth (Robert Burns) (6) RE: Origin of Scottish song 27 Jan 00

The song seems to be entirely by Burns, but as usual it is based, however loosely, on a traditional theme. The tune is called"Mr Charles Graham's Welcome Home", in print 1788, slightly modified by Stephen Clarke to fit the words.-- There's no reason to suppose that the absent lover is anywhere but the west of Scotland, surely?
