The Calton Weaver Traditional I am a weav er, a cal ton weav er. G Em C D7 I am a rash and a rov ing blade. I've got sil ver G Bm C D7 C Em in my pock ets. I'll go and fol low the C D7 G Em rov ing trade. Whisk y, whisk y, C D7 G Em Nan cy whisk y. Whisk y, whisk y, Nan cy, oh. C D7 Em Bm C D7 As I cam in by Glasgow city, Nancy Whiskey I chanced to smell. I gaed in, sat doon beside her. Seven lang years I lo'ed her well. (Chorus) The mair I kissed her, the mair I lo'ed her. The mair I kissed her, the mair she smiled, An' I forgot my mither's teaching Nancy soon had me beguiled. (Chorus) I woke early in the morning. To slake my drouth it was my need. I tried to rise but I wasna able. Nancy had me by the heid. (Chorus) "Come, landlady what's the lawin? Tell me whit there is to pay." "Fifteen shillings is the reckoning. Pay me quickly and go away." (Chorus) I'll gang back to the calton weaving. I'll surely make the shuttles fly. I'll make mair at the Calton weaving, Than ever I did in a roving way. (Chorus) Come all ye weavers, calton weavers, All ye weavers where'er ye be, Beware of whisky, Nancy Whisky. She'll ruin you as she ruined me. (Chorus, 2x) Chorus: Whisky, whisky, Nancy Whisky. Whisky, whisky, Nancy, oh. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
