Burns’ mastery here encompasses all the emotion and feeling of old friends meeting up after growing up together then spending years apart. Long established as THE farewell song and often sung (badly) at New Year or Hogmanay as we say in Scotland. These are the words in full and the tune that RB intended be used. See my other videos for Burns items too.
