Summary

Emigrant song in which the singer and his comrade are resolved to make a new life for themselves in America, though it means leaving their beloved home in Machrihanish. They are not sure what to expect in their new home, but they have a friend who is already there, and who will help them on their arrival. They bid farewell to their parents.

Agnes Mitchell learned the song from her father.
