Rab Ravlin the Weaver

"Rab Ravlin The Weaver", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.

This song sympathises with the plight of Rab Ravlin, who had a particulary lazy, dirty, flea-infested, untidy and drunken wife. "O Lord, keep me frae sic anither!"
