Songs That Every Child Should Know 5
Annie Laurie
The romantic interest in this song had its foundation in the loves of Douglas of Finland and Annie Laurie. The original music was written by Douglas. Two stanzas are appended, which are the original verses; the first one having been vouched for and signed, as below, in 1854, by an old lady, who was the granddaughter of Douglas.
Music by Lady John Scott.
Her brow is like the snawdrift, Her throat is like the swan;
Her face it is the fairest That e'er the sun shone on.
