Barbershop quartet with a 17th century lyrical poem by William Douglas of Fingland, in love with Annie Laurie, youngest daughter of Sir Robert Laurie, baronet of Maxerlton. Lyrics adapted two centuries later by Lady John Scott (1810-1900) who rewrote the second verse and added a third one. In 1838 set to the melody of My Jo (John Anderson), also known as Lay Me Down And Dream. Favorite song among British soldiers during the Crimean War. The real Annie Laurie died in 1764 and was buried in Glencairn, Dumfriesshire.
