AND THE MOON SHONE BRIGHT AND CLEARLY..

A mile and a bit aff, a mile or twa,
Up in the barn, (up in) the loft,
Davie (O'Donal) an' Charlie and a'
And the moon was shinin' clearly.

Yin went hame wi' the other and then,
The other went hame wi' the other twa men,
An' baith wad return in the service again,
And the moon was shinin' clearly.

It's oot the barn and o'er the hill,
Through the dark, and there's the still,
A cup in yer hand an' drink yer fill,
And the moon was shinin'...clear.

Clocks wer chappin' in hoose and ha',
Aleeven, twelve an' yin an' twa,
The guidman's face was turned ta the wa',
And the moon was shinin' clearly.

A wind got up fae aff o' the sea,
It blew the stars as clear as could be,
It blew in the e'en o'er a' the (fee),
And the moon was shinin' clearly.

It's oot the barn and o'er the hill,
Through the dark, and there's the still,
A cup in yer hand an' drink yer fill,
And the moon was shinin'...clear.

Noo Davie was first ta get sleep in his head,
"The best of dreams (me entwine)," he says,
"I'm (weary) from here, I'm awa' ta ma bed,"
And the moon was shinin' clearly.

Twa o' them (walkin') and crackin' and leeing,
The mornin' light come grey an plain,
And the birds they yammer'd on stick an' stane,
And the moon was shinin' clearly.

It's oot the barn and o'er the hill,
Through the dark, and there's the still,
A cup in yer hand an' drink yer fill,
And the moon was shinin'...clear.

Years ayont, years awa'
The lads, ye'll mind whatere befa'
Lads ye'll mind (on if ye've) gone awa'
And the moon was shinin' clearly.

It's oot the barn and o'er the hill,
Through the dark, and there's the still,
A cup in yer hand an' drink yer fill,
And the moon was shinin'...clear.
