Ana Common Scots songs 60 years ago (46) Common Scots songs 60 years ago 12 Jul 11

I've recently meet a Scottish woman who lives in the same secure dementia unit as my mum. She emigrated to NZ (ex Glasgow) in the late 40s, and was singing (beautifully and word perfect) a song she had learnt at school. I sang her a couple of my Scots songs, but they weren't ones she knew (Busk, busk; Gloomy winter). I'd really like to be better prepared next time, so would appreciate some help! Can folks give me the names of half a dozen names of Scottish songs that would have been common, learnt at school etc in the 1920s-30s. Thanks!
