Donald Blue

"Donald Blue" is the lights-out tune for several Scottish regiments, including the famous Black Watch.

The lyrics tell that a smith has a drinking wife, often found drunk in the street. One day, as his wife is asleep, he is called out to rescue her. He finds a drunken woman who looks so like his wife he cannot tell them apart. His wife quits drinking as a result.
