MY LOVER WOUNDED (Mo ghradh fo leoin). Scottish, Slow Air (3/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "The few verses the editor ever heard of this delightful simple melody, mentioned no name that could enable him to trace the event which gave rise to it. There is an imperfect set of it in the collection of the Reverend Patrick MacDonald,-- which corroborates its being a Highland melody. The set now given was from the gentlemen alluded to in the Prospectus" (Fraser).
