The Curly Headed Ploughboy

The tune is well-known at barn dances, the words less so, but the song, which I always associate with the Borders, was printed by all the many broadsheet printers throughout the 19th century and in song books since, with scarcely any variation in the words.

The painting is The Plough Boy by Henry Herbert La Thangue 1900.
