Will Ye No Come Back Again



“Bonnie Charlie”, also commonly known as “Will ye no come back again?”, is a Scots poem by Carolina Oliphant (Lady Nairne), set to a traditional Scottish folk tune. Lady Nairne came from a Jacobite family, and Prince Charles had stopped to dine at Nairne House on 4 September 1745, during the march to Edinburgh. The song, especially its melody, is widely and traditionally used as a song of farewell – often in association with Auld Lang Syne.
