Aye Waulkin'O

04:49
Jennifer Culley Curtin
Collected or Adapted by Robert Burns

Story

One the first Scottish songs I learned - you just can't beat Robert Burns for wonderful, singable songs!  Next time you drive through Barre, VT give his statue a wave and thank him for being wise enough to collect and write down the great songs of Scotland.

Lyrics

Aye Waulkin’O

Summer is a pleasant time
There flowers of every color
The water runs over the haugh
And I long for my true lover, aye waulkin’o

CHORUS:
Waulkin I am weary
Sleep I can get nane
For thinking on my dearie
Aye waulkin’o

When first she came to town
They called her Grace MacFarland
But now she's gone awa
They’re callin her all folk’s darlin', aye waulkin’o

Her father loves her well
Her mother loves her better
And I love the lass myself
But  me, I can nae get her, aye waulkin’o

When I sleep I dream
And when I wake, I'm weary
Sleep I can get none
For thinking on my dearie, aye waulkin’o

Summer is a pleasant time
There flowers of every color
The water runs over the haugh
And I long for my true lover, aye waulkin'o
