Subject: Lyr Req: I gave it to the weaver (?)
From: GUEST,Boocal
Date: 03 May 10 - 07:45 PM

I have a memory of a song I used to sing many years ago, and a part of it came back to me this weekend on Mayday hearing someone play the melody. I remember it sung by Gordeanna McCullough (sp?) and the chorus goes:

I had lovers eight or nine,
They gave me gold and ribbons fine
But I was afraid my heart would tinre
So I gave it to the weaver.

More lyrics would be welcomed.

Crowhugger linked to the World Burns Club which says, "Under no circumstances can any of the contents of this site be copied, reproduced, or represented without prior written consent." but most of their content is in the public domain, so I'm going to post it. Also please take a look at the Digital Tradition version - there's a link above.


The Gallant Weaver

Burns Original

Standard English Translation


1.
Where Cart rins rowin to the sea
By monie a flower and spreading tree,
There lives a lad, the lad for me -
He is a gallant weaver!
O, I had wooers aught or nine,
They gied me rings and ribbons fine,
And I was fear'd my heart wad tine,
And I gied it to the weaver.
2.
My daddie sign'd my tocher-band
To gie the lad that has the land;
But to my heart I'll add my hand,
And give it to the weaver.
While birds rejoice in leafy bowers,
While bees delight in opening flowers
While corn grows green in summer showers,
I love my gallant weaver.



Where Cart runs rolling to the sea
By many a flower and spreading tree,
There lives a lad, the lad for me -
He is a gallant weaver!
O, I had wooers eight or nine,
They gave me rings and ribbons fine,
And I was afraid my heart would be lost,
And I gave it to the weaver.

My daddy signed my dowry deed of settlement
To give the lad that has the land;
But to my heart I will add my hand,
And give it to the weaver.
While birds rejoice in leafy bowers,
While bees delight in opening flowers
While corn grows green in summer showers,
I love my gallant weaver.
