[1845?] · Glasgow
The title song in this chapbook concerns a battle in which the English surprised and defeated the Scots under Livingston on "the haughs of Crumdel" (haughs are low-lying meadows by the side of a river); the English victory was short-lived as Montrose, against all advice, insisted on riding to Crumdel, where he surprised the English, slaughtered large numbers of them and routed the rest. In addition to the title-piece, this songster includes "The Charming Widow," "I've Dreamt That Thou Art Fading," "Love, and Our Ocean Home," and "You'll Find No Change in Me."
The woodcut title-page vignette shows a man in bonnet, kilt & sporran, standing by a tombstone and leaning on his rifle, with "[No.] 17" printed at the foot of the title.
