The subject of this song by Burns was a Miss Kennedy of Dalgarrock, the niece of a baronet, who fell for a landed gentleman from Wigtownshire. She became pregnant and was abandoned, and eventually died of a broken heart.

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