Highland Cradle Song

Primarily a pipe tune, strongly associated with the Scots Guards. Also suitable for inclusion with a waltz set at a ceilidh, and my abc submission reflects this latter useage.

Although the title incorporates the word: "song", there is some debate as to whether there are actually any lyrics associated with it.

A wistful and haunting melody …
