Afton Water

This tune is part of the following collections:

The tune for this song was sent to Thomson by Burns, along with the first four lines of the song. He intended sending the rest, but never did. Other verses were written by Robert Gilfillan, but the extra verses that are most sung these days were written in 1821 by Robert Allan of Kilbarchan.

This song and others written by Robert Burns can be found in my Composers Collection.
