Notaichean a' Chlàir

4 verses of 4 lines.

This song is a variant or progenitor of 'Lady on the Mountain' (Roud 2603), typically found as a children's singing game. It may be related to a number of similar courtship-dialogue songs, including 'The Keys of Canterbury'/'A Paper of Pins' (Roud 573) and 'The Quaker's Courthip'/'Madam, I Have come A-Courting' (Roud 716)

Off tape, Belle Stewart says that she got the song from her brother, Donald Stewart.
