Thread Name: Help: American songs from Scotland?
Subject: American songs from Scotland?
A friend has put in a request, on behalf of his Scottish ceilidh singing group, for 'songs that everyone thinks of as "American" that have Scottish roots'. Off the top of my head, I can only think of obscure ballads, like Lamkin, but they're looking for things to do at a fund-raising performance and so probably would like more recognisable songs.

Any suggestions?
