Thread Name: Parting songs
Subject: Lyr Add: IN FREENDSHIP'S NAME
As a parting song, how about "In Freendship's Name" which has the lines
Freendship maks us a' mair happy
Freendship gies us a' delight
Freendship consecrates the drappie
Freendship brocht us here the night
Happy we've been a the gither
Canty, we've been yin and a'
Time shall see us a' mair blyther
Ere we rise tae gang awa'
Not sure who it's been recorded by, it's from the singing of Willie Scott, from the Borders but it's fairly well known in Scottish sessions
