I'm looking for the lyrics to "The Shepherd's Life". It's on "A Mile to Ride" by the High Level Ranters and is attributed to the singing of a shepherd named Willy Scott.

The chorus begins,

"Aa can smear me sheep in dip Aa can udder, lock and clip, Aa can lamb the yows wi' any o' them a'

(and ends with,

"But aa wish these cold East winds would never blaa"

Hey, Oz ...

What is this, a tupper's love song?

A *real* shepherd loves the tups just as much as the yows, I think. This one loves a woman, too, his dearest Jean, and is looking forward to the "dee we'll be na longer twa".

But there are some words I just can't decipher from listening, which is why I need the lyrics.
