Auld Lang Syne


Auld Lang Syne is a traditional Scottish melody with words adapted by Robert Burns in the late 18th century. The title translates to "old long ago." Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians popularized the song when they revived the tune for a New Year's Eve radio broadcast in 1929. A chord-melody arrangement of this song is presented below in the key of C. The song is played moderately in 4/4 time.
