Re: Abby Sale's question about the second verse. She did some good guessing:

"Tae Ca (drive) his twa best horses

Tae cairt or harrie (harrow) or ploo

Or dae ony thin aboot fairmwork

As I righct weel can do"

The parenthetical stuff are definitions/transliterations. This version is pretty much in Northeastern dialect.
