GUEST,Brian Lyr Req: A Gordon for Me (Robert Wilson) (46) RE: Lyr Req: A Gordon for Me - scottish folk song 01 Dec 07


There is another song that Robert Wilson sang praising the Gordons. I saw him singing it in the Aberdeen Tivoli when I was wee boy in the early sixties. It is called "Here's to the Gordons". I camea across the original sheey music of it and gave it to the Gordon Highlanders Regimet museum in Aberdeen. The song went:

As I was slowly walking in Aberdeen one day
I saw the Gordons marching in tartan green and grey.
Beside me stood a lassie nae higher than my knee
And when the Gordons passed us by that lassie said to me -
Here's to the Gordons the etc, etc
