COME ALONG AND KEEP YOUR PROMISE (Teann a nall is cum do ghealladh). Scottish, Strathspey. C Minor. Standard tuning. AB. This tune "is an air to which the editor has heard his father sing several good verses, but is infinitely better as a dancing tune, and forms an exquisite medley with No. 145 ("I'll Kiss the Bonny Lassie, Oh!"), which follows it" (Fraser). The title perhaps references a promise to "come out" for the 1745 rebellion.

Printed sources: Fraser (The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles), 1816/1874; No. 144, p. 58. Stewart-Robertson (The Athole Collection), 1884; p. 267.
