Broadside ballad entitled ‘Glasgow Fair on the Banks of Clyde’

Verse 1: ‘When I was young and youth did bloom, / Where fancy led me, I did roam; / From town to town the country round, / Through every sylvan shady grove. / Until I came from Scotland by name, / Where beauty shines on every side, / There’s no town there we can compare / With Glasgow fair, on the banks of Clyde.’ It was to be sung to the original tune, suggesting that both the song and melody were well-known, and was published in 1869 by the Poet’s Box, 80 London Street, Glasgow. for more click here
