The only reference to this song I can find is via Google on an Old Blind Dogs site www.geocities.com/celticlyricscorner/ oldblinddogs/talltails.htm
Does anybody know any any other versions and anything about the song?

Mike

It's in the Digitrad, and here:-


I'LL LAY YE DOON, LOVE

   O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll fill your can
   O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   For surely he is an honest man

As I walked oot on a summer evenin'
Doon by the water and the pleasant strand
And as I was walkin, I heard them talkin'
Sayin', Surely he is an honest man

O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll fill your can
   O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   For surely he is an honest man

I hae traveled far frae Inverney
Aye, and doon as far as Edinburgh toon
And it's I maun gae, love, and travel further
But when I come back, I will lay ye doon

O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll fill your can
   O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   For surely he is an honest man

I maun leave ye noo, love, but I'll return
Tae ye my love and I'll tak' your hand,
Then no more I'll roam frae ye my love
Nae mair tae walk on a foreign strand.

O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll fill your can
   O I'll lay ye doon, love, I'll treat ye decent
   For surely he is an honest man

It's in the DT here

The version I know best is from an early 1960s Topic LP The Hale & The Hanged by the Exiles (Enoch Kent, Gordon McCulloch, Bobby Campbell and Tim Lyons).

It's on Castlebay's first album (titled "Castlebay"), with Fred Gosbee doing the vocals. I think they may have been with Outer Green back then.

I've got a recording by Alex Campbell, on the double album 'Live and Studio' (1976).

See past threads for more information. A search for solid man would prove rewarding. OBD rarely bother to provide information about the songs they record, so we have to do it here instead.
