Listen a' youse yins----- As I gaed doon the Ettrick valley, at the hour o' twelve at night, Wha did I spy but a bonnie lassie, combin' her hair in the candle light.--"Lassie I hae come a courtin', a' yer favours for tae win, and if ye will smile on me, next Sunday nicht I'll call again!" Any comments? [ There are four verses--with the 'falderaloral' chorus between--and is sung alternately male and female as a duet]] Anyone familiar with this version, or able to make comparison with the Irish version?
