Notaichean a' Chlàir - 2 verses; verse 1 has 6 lines, verse 2 has 4 lines. Sung to the original melody of Robert Burns' song 'Auld Lang Syne' (not the commonly known tune, originally taken from the song 'I Fee'd a Lad at Martinmas').
These fragments come from the opening verses; the ballad involves two lovers whose mothers disapprove of their love, and who are both drowned in the River Clyde due to their mothers' curses.
