Subject: Jaunting Car tune (not the Irish Jaunting Car
From: G-Force
Date: 15 Jan 21 - 05:50 AM

I used to sing The Jaunting Car, a Scottish song, which was a version of Old Men When You're Young etc. Now I can't remember the tune at all. Searches only seem to bring up The Irish Jaunting Car, a completely different song. Would be grateful if anyone can help.

If it helps, here are the first two verses:

Oh hold your tongue dear Sally till I get into the town
And I'll buy for you a jaunting car and a braw white muslin gown
And I'll buy for you a jaunting car and a braw white muslin gown
And likewise a little wee lapdog to follow the jaunting car

Oh the devil gang with your lapdog, your jaunting car and all
For I'd rather have a young man without a penny of all
I'd rather have a young man to roll me frae the wall
Before I'd have an old man, his jaunting car and all

Many thanks

Thank you so much. It's the tune I remember from many years ago, but rather slower than I used to sing it. It will be a pleasure to revisit it. You've been a great help.
