Date: 06 Dec 00 - 02:30 PM

Anybody know of a good repository of this bands lyrics?? Some really good songage comes out of 'em but I could use a printed version to help piece together North American translations of them...
Songs I'm looking for include...

Mormond Braes
Barnyards of O'Delgaty
Bonny Earl of Morray
Pills Of White Mercury (I've check the DT and the version in there is way off in lots of places....)
Lancashire Lads
And any other song I can lay hands on...

ta', in advance eh!

BARNYARDS OF DELGATY

THE BATTLE OF HARLAW (2)

MORMOND BRAES

Try these links (if they work)

Main diff in the OBD version of Battle of Harlaw is that they sing: "Diddy Aye Oh, fal and a doh, Diddy Aye Oh Aye Ay" as the refrain...

there's a guy in our folk club sings the white Pill of Mercury song.. I'll ask him....

The Old Blind dogs are the berries!

Cheers

well...

Yer link to Mormon Braes has nothing at all to do with the version that Old Blind Dogs sings....

Barnyards is sorta close, if missing a whole verse and some of it is slightly suspect...

And well, THE BATTLE OF HARLAW Iknow not at all.. yet...

Anyone else care to take a stab?

Go to the second page under the Digitrad listing for "Pills of White Mercury." That's where I finally found it, thanks to some good folk here who helped me find my way around.

Again, ditto the Bonny Earl of Moray (is I think how it's listed) -- go to page two.

If you want it too, Whaur Gadie Rins is listed under Bannachie, and is the second page as per OBD.

Oops, ye olde quick button struck again.

Sorry, and (I hope) clarification.

Go to the song in the index. At the top of the page, see the blueclickything that says "Next Whole Page"? Sometimes at the bottom, too, if I'm awake enough to remember. Click it.

There may be variations of the same song, and they're posted on separate pages under the same title.

You're probably lookin for older stuff by them, but if you need any lyrics from the latest CD 'The World's Room' I have them all (simple, came wi the CD!). Let me ask Ian too-I know Jim Malcolm has played at their folk club in Fife many times, and while Jim is a relatively new member, some of that bunch might have the lyrics you're looking for.

I went to look and it's a redclickything that says "Next Entire Page."

I'm at work, and therefore not awake. They frown on too much brain usage here...So I fit in well.

I get no link at all that says Next Entire page...

Click on the links above to the 'songs', then selection NEXrt from the option bar across the top of the song does bring me to other songs, but not the ones I'm looking for....

Clinton,

Okay, let's start this at the beginning:

You go to the index. You click on a letter, say "B" for "Barnyards of Delgaty."

You get all the songs with B in their title. Find Barnyards of Delgaty. Click on it.

Now, at the top of that page, there should be a redclickything that says "Next Entire Page"

Click that.

o.k...

I did that... and eventually all i got to was the barnyards in Dougs post above... the one that's suspect in place and missing a whole verse...

So I'm gonna assume, like happens so often what I'm lookng for AIN'T in the DB....

Subject: Lyr Add: BARNYARDS OF DELGATY^^^
From: GUEST,Sarah

Clinton:

Are you talking about this one?

BARNYARDS OF DELGATY

As I cam' in by Turra Market,
Turra Market for to fee
I fell in wi' a farmer chiel,
The Barnyards of Delgaty

Lintin addie toorin addie, Lintin addie toorin ee
Lintin lowrin, lowrin, lowrin, The barnyards of Delgaty

He promised me the ae best pair
That ever I set my e'en upon
When I gaed to the Barnyards,
There was naething there but skin and bone

The auld black horse sat on its rump,
The auld white mare lay on her wime
And for all that I could "Hup" and crack
They wouldna rise at yokin' time

When I gae to the kirk on Sunday
Mony's the bonnie lass I see
Sitting by her faither's side
And winkin o'er the pews at me

I can drink and no be drunk
I can fecht and no be slain
I can lie wi another man's lass
And aye be welcome to my ain

Noo my candle is brunt oot
My snotter's fairly on the wane
Sae fare ye weel ye Barnyards
Ye'll never catch me here again

***

If so, I think the missing verse is:

It's Meg McPherson maks my brose,
And wi' her I canna 'gree.
First a mote and syne a knot,
An' aye the ither jilp o' bree.

(There's another that goes before this one, that OBD omits on their "Live" album...)

It's lang Jean Scott wha' maks my bed;
Ye can see the marks upon my shins,
For she's the coorse, ill-trickit jaud
Wha' fills my bed wi' prickly whins.

(Anyway, try Pills of White Mercury and the Bonny Earl of Moray, both page 2)

Clinton,

I've received so much help here, oughta pass it on, eh?

(Besides, now I can dance around my desk, singing, "I helped someone; I helped someone; I went to the 'cat and I helped someone!" And then go home to get some sleep, if I can get that tomato plant in the Oscar Wilde thread off my mind...)
