There are more than one hundred modern and traditional Scottish folksongs in this collection. Compiled by two well-known folksong enthusiasts, the collection's primary aim is to present the best singing versions of the best Scottish folksongs, songs which provide a comprehensive picture of the Scottish way of life, from Border ballads to Glasgow street songs. Each of the 118 folksongs is presented with its melodic line and guitar chords. The songs are grouped in five sections, and the range of mood and settings is wide. There are songs about the sea, romance, the worker's lot, politics, battles, tinkers and city life. There are cheerful songs, sad songs, bawdy songs, and love songs. Any folksinger's repertoire will be extended with the help of this book.
