Folksongs

Scottish Folksongs - Bonnie Dundee. If you'd like to read about him Rosemary Sutcliff's book, Bonnie Dundee, paints a more positive picture than the Douglas Bond Crown & Covenant series.
The poem by Sir Walter Scott can be found here:

Irish Folksongs - if you've grown up in Ireland or Scotland you'd get this song. Here's a link to Orange & Green by G.A. Henty, a book which will give you some background to the Catholic/Protestant issue that even I can remember from my childhood in Scotland.
