I MAY BE A BLAW-IN
Words & music by Billy Henderson
CHORUS: I may be a blaw-in, but I'm naw a blaw-weary
Wild rover no more, till ma lugs have went bleary,
Awaiting the muse wi' a brain like a peerie,
My livelihood's goin' for a song.
1. Communities come and communities go,
And it's whether in Kishorn or up in Dungloe,
But it's something the city-folks never will know,
All wrapped up in their ain morbid world.
2. I've played on the streets, in the pubs often sung,
I'm not fashed wi' electric to acoustic aye clung,
Aye and though just a blaw-in ne'er spoke wi' forked tongue
And I've picked up some freens on the wei.
3. I've put up wi' hecklers, their gibes would appal ye,
Ta'en the guid wi' the bad when the audience call me,
But nothing's mare cheering as a roaring come-all-ye
To end a night's tuneful soiree.
4. Contented wi' pickin's, I'm juist a jalouser,
Naw breingin' my innermaist thochts in the boozer,
Tak' tent tae these lines or you micht be the loser,
It's nice tae be nice is it naw?
