A bit of background: the poet of this tragic song was "Anon" (maybe the tune-collector Alexander Campbell himself?), and he set it to an "ancient Lowland melody" that he had collected on his song-collecting travels. The lyrics tell the story of a girl who went out of her mind with grief, when her fiance was taken from her on their wedding day. The theme is strongly reminiscent of a very popular song, "Crazy Jane."

Whether he died, was conscripted, or some other disastrous circumstance, is entirely up to the listener's imagination in the present song.

Alexander Campbell went on two song-collecting tours in Scotland in 1815 and 1817, publishing a song collection after each trip. Sadly, his piano accompaniments were pretty dire. It is with relief that I ditched his accompaniment for this one and wrote an alternative violin accompaniment!
