WillYe Go to the Indies:  As a young man Scotland’s great poet, Robert Burns,fell in love with a girl he called Highland Mary, and persuaded her to emigratewith him to the West Indies. In the text of this song we hear the poem he wroteabout those huge decisions. Tragically, Mary died before they could start theirlife together. Many years later, in 1792, Burns set the poem to an old Scottishfolk song. To his publisher he explained: You must know, that all myearlier love-songs were the breathings of ardent Passion; and tho’ it mighthave been easy in aftertimes to have given them a polish, yet that polish wouldhave defaced the legend of my heart.
