See if this is it. The standard trick is to reshape the data from wide 
to long, see the SO post [1]. Then add a scale_shape_* layer to the plot.

yyy <- cbind(xxx, y3 = y3)
long <- reshape2::melt(yyy, id.vars = c("x", "y1", "grp"))

ggplot(long, aes(x, y = value, colour = variable, shape = variable)) +
   geom_line(aes(y = y1)) +
   geom_point() +
   scale_colour_manual("Doesn't work",values=c("blue","red"),
                       labels=c("clyde","irving")) +
   scale_shape_manual("Doesn't work",values=c(16,3),
                       labels=c("clyde","irving")) +



Hope this helps,
