This ballad begins: ‘As I went out one morning clear down by yon river side, / I overheard a fair maid, the tears rolling down did glide, / This is a cold and stormy night, these words I heard her say / My lover is on the ocean wide bound for America.’ It was published by James Lindsay of 11 King Street, Glasgow, and probably sold for one penny.for more click here
