I sang this song at a care home in Lanark yesterday and was delighted that so many of the elderly folks knew it.

The original song was written by Tom Johnston who wrote many music hall songs in the late 19th century/early 20th.

My Granny gave me the original words that had been passed to her by Mary Johnston, Tom's daughter.

They are a little different from the versions that I've seen in Mudcat, but close.

Cheers


John

There's another verse (which fills a gap in the narrative in the version linked above):

The other mornin early, as the Baurlin I did pass
I happened tae foregaither wi a nice wee country lass.
Says I "Ma bonnie lassie, if ye're gangin ower that airt
A'll drive ye intae Glasga in ma soor mulk cairt."

Sometimes "Baurlin" is given as "Borwee", but I believe that Baurlin was the name of a farmsteading in that area.
