ITEM NOTE: This appears to derive from an American song by Harry Bennett first published in 1877 under the title 'Love', later known as 'The Bald-Headed End of the Broom' (G. T. Meade, 'Country Music Sources', 2002, p. 141; V. Randolph, 'Ozark Folk Songs' vol. 3, 1949, p. 105). The theme and several lyrics in this Scots song are very similar.
