Songs of days gone by
by Alice McKiel

Here are a few songs Grandma used to sing while she knitted me a scarf or mittens
           

BLUEBELLS OF SCOTLAND

Oh, where, tell me where has your Highland laddie gone?
Oh, where, tell me where has your Highland laddie gone?
He's gone with streaming banners - where noble deeds are done
And it's oh, in my heart I wish him safe at home.

Oh, what, lassie does your Highland laddie wear?
Oh, what, lassie does your Highland laddie wear?
A scarlet coat and bonnet wi' bonnie yellow hair
And there's none in the world can wi' my love compare.

Oh, what will you claim for your constancy to him?
Oh, what will you claim for your constancy to him?
I'll claim a priest to wed us and a clerk to say "Amen"
And I'll ne'er part from my Highland man again.
