Please can someone post the words of "I'll tak ye tae Glenisla by bonnie Glenshee"? I've got the Gaberlunzie tape but can't quite make out all the words of the first and last verses. (Diction and enunciation as my last drama producer kept saying!!) Maybe Bradypus who kindly posted "Sam the Skull"? Thanks, Tattie B

Hi Barry, how are you ?

This is a gorgeous song , I have sung it for years. But I have to confess I have never known exactly what "busk " means. (Enter stage right thousands of Mudcatters who DO know ......)

Hi Murray, you still there, beginning to wonder about what they're doing to you down there in all that heat. Drop back up north for a chill & a song. Take care. Barry

Boston in winter ? No thank you I am fully acclimatized here Barry. But you are very welcome to come here and stay with us in February, when we are having Martin Simpson play for us in Homestead as the featured artist in our Festival. It is going to be one seriously good weekend !

Miuray

Thanks to all responders: The DT didn't recognise Glenisla it seems: Glenshee would have been better! Special thanks to Zebedee (boing!!) also for replies re the Red Flag tune: amazing what education you can get here on Mudcat: you'll have sussed out I'm fairly new to the experience! tattie B

Busk can mean to get dressed, or to be arrayed.. so it can be used to mean "dress up in"

Cheers
