Robert Tannahill was a Scottish poet. Known as the 'Weaver Poet', he wrote lyrics in Scots.

Most of Tannahill's poetry dates from 1802, when he composed as he worked at the loom, ‘weaving threads and verses alternately’. His interest in poetry was of long standing and his reading was almost solely confined to it. Using both English and Scots, he experimented with many forms: tales, fables, epitaphs, verse epistles, odes, besides the body of Scots song on which his reputation mainly rests.
