Bonny Lassie's Answer

"Bonny Lassie's Answer", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.

The song is about a young man who is forced to leave his sweetheart in Glasgow and go to war. It is not clear what question he asks her, but her answer could hardly be more equivocal - "the bonnie lassie's answer was aye no, no"!
