This song is one of those written down by Robert Burns as part of his longstanding project to preserve traditional Scottish songs for posterity (Auld Lang Syne was his 'greatest hit' among the 300 or so songs he recorded).
The song was first published with a tune written by Pietro Urbani, a Scots singer to whom Burns gave his version of the traditional words, and was later published with other tunes until it was paired with the tune Low Down in the Broom. It was this version, published in 1821, which became the most famous. There have been lots of versions, including:
