LOGIE O' BUCHAN
from the sleeve notes of the CD "The Mermaids Song"
by The Tannahill Weavers, (Green Linnet GLCD1121, 1992)
1. Oh Logie o' Buchan, oh Logie the laird,
They ha'e ta'en awa' Jamie wha delved in the yaird.
Wha played on the pipes and the fiddle saw sma',
They ha'e ta'en awa' Jamie the flo'er o'them a'.
CHORUS: He said think na' lang lassie though I gang awa',
For I'll come and se ye in spite o' them a'.
2. Sandy has owsen has gear and has kye,
A hoose and a haddin and siller for bye.
But I'll ha'e my ain lad wi' his staff in his hand,
Before I'll ha'e him wi' his hooses and land. (Chorus)
3. I sit on my creepie and spin at my wheel,
And think on the laddie that lo'ed me sae weel.
He had but ae' saxpence he broke it in twa,
And gied me the hauf o't when he gaed awa'. (Chorus)
4. Then haste ye back Jamie and bide nae awa',
Then haste ye back Jamie and bide nae awa'.
The summer is coming, cauld winter's awa',
And ye'll come see me in spite o' them a'. (Chorus)
If you haven't heard this version this CD is a must.
The Tannahills at their best.
