There is a bit of confusion regarding the authorship of this tune. It was given as composed by Niel Gow in his 4th Collection, and subsequently by his son Nathaniel. It was also claimed by James Porteous in his 1820 collection. The tune also spread elsewhere; in Ireland it's known as The King's Shilling, Forget Me Not, Kilkenny Boys and James Duffy's, while in Shetland a variant exists under the name of Sail Her oer the Raftrees.
