0 - The lines, "Who will shoe your pretty little foot?" are among those"floating" lyric verses that appear in a number of Anglo-Celtic and African- American songs with a theme of farewell. They occur in Child No. 76, "The Lass of Loch Royal" (aka "Lord Gregory" and "Annie of Lochroyan"). Robert Burns's celebrated "My Love Is Like a Red, Red, Rose" is a composed farewell song that is related to this material.
