hi, im from that part of scotland (the north east) where this song originates from. it was written in doric (the dialect of the north east if you didnt know) but over the years some folk have kind of changed the words a wee bit and now its being sung all over! just a wee note, i think that the line sic'can a suther wis a'body in should be should be sic'can a sotter wis a'body in. a sotter being the doric for mess. if you have any queries on words or versions please feel free to email me at i dont normally give out my email but i will for this, im a student studying scottish music and researching bothy ballads and songs from the north east. cheers. shona
