I remember being young and my dad would sing this over the phone to me as he would be away out at work. He would sing this and other really scottish songs till I fell asleep. Makes me miss times like that when I hear this song, brings tears to my eyes.

It's very much a Scottish song not English.

Well it is about the Young Pretender Charles Stewart. His return to Scotland for the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion. Cannot get much more Scottish.
