This Scottish tune, sometimes known as The Banks O’Doon (a river in Scotland) was written in 1791 by Robert Burns. The lyrics hint at the sad tale that was Burns’ inspiration.  It has been nicely arranged for 8 bells and is accessible for the Level 2 ringer. It is two pages in length and includes a repeat. (The recording does not include the repeat.)  Alternate title:  Come, O Thou Traveler Unknown
