 As with most folksongs, the origins of this folksong are unknown other than it surfaced in the eighteenth century. Often known as 'Fair Phoebe and her Dark-eyed Sailor', this Scottish folksong, tells the story of two lovers who break a token - such as a ring - in half when they are parted, so that they will know each other when they are finally reunited.
