Thread Name: Scottish republican socialist songs
Subject: RE: Scottish republican socialist songs
Allan, as you know most if not all Jacobite songs were written many years after the events and were an attack on the foreign/German/English monarchy imposed on Scotland rather than some form of romantic desire for a Scottish monarchy, however it was expressed by James Hogg or Lady Nairn. The SRSM song collection is well within its remit to include any song or idea which promotes Scottish independence but my favourite Jacobite song is "Will ye DEFINITLEY no' come back again".
